Batr Spirits Tot Measures

Postby pensure1988 » Fri Nov 23, 2018 9:15 am

Hi

I was wondering where would be the best place to buy some Bar Tot Measures on the Costa de Sol. I live near Manilva & Estepona

Thank You

David

Are they available here in Spain?
Never seen any in the bars I've been in. They just pour the spirits without any measuring.

Hi Gerry

Don't the English or Irish Bars use them either. Surely if they want to protect their profits, they will want to measure the Spirits out in the glasses. I am just curious, that is all.

Thank You

Can't say I have ever seen them in the bars I go to.
I mostly go to Spanish bars, larger measures and cheaper. :thumbup: :wave:

It's done by guesswork/time here, not volume.
For gin, if you're lucky, there's just enough space left for a token splash of tonic! 8)

For pukka bar measures, go to Amazon, and just enter "jiggers". Lots of choice.

If English or Irish bars used them they would be out of business within a week.

I can vouch for that: a newly arrived English family took over a large, long established bar in the centre of Torremolinos some years ago, and promptly introduced optics, thinking it was the best way to manage their stock / profits. It's hard to say who deserted the place fastest, the punters or the staff (who were not about to take the abuse). The place went from bad to worse after that.

Apart from that rather bizarre episdoe, I have never seen or heard of them being used in Spain.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often

Hi

We run a small social club and have to raise funds to pay the Rent etc of our Premises. Measuring out the Spirits will assist in making our small Bar profitable.

"will assist in making our small Bar profitable." not if people vote with their feet and either stop using the bar, or just have one drink all evening!

We visited a bar just recently (lunchtime) in Benalmadena Marina, I had a beer and the wife a Cointreau & Bitter Lemon. At out table the barman glugged a huge measure of Cointreau into the glass, I noticed that the plastic ring in the bottle top was missing, after tasting my wife was certain is was a Cointreau bottle filled with cheaper substitute - we now give this place a miss.
