Bar spoon

A bar spoon is a long-handled spoon used in bartending for mixing and layering of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic mixed drinks. Its length ensures that it can reach the bottom of the tallest jug or tumbler to mix ingredients directly in the glass.[1]

A bar spoon holds about 5 millilitres of liquid (the same as a conventional teaspoon) or 2.5 ml of liquid (standard size in Europe). Its long handle is similar to an iced tea spoon, but is usually decorative and elegant some variations mimic large swizzle sticks, with a disc at one end. The shaft is typically thin and threaded so that the fingers can easily grip and rotate the spoon.[2][3]
