QUESTION FROM: Arizona Bar Owner

I'm curious as to what kind of liquor pour nozzles you guys recommend. I bought some recently from a restaurant supply warehouse (plastic with perforated square ends) & they don't work worth a crap!  I really need better liquor control. I don't want free pour stainless steel either.

HH ANSWER:

Classic Stainless Steel bent neck speed pourers are the only way to go...if you’re concerned about free-pouring there are 3 things you can do:

1. Watch your bartenders (and know your counts).

2. Conduct consistent inventories regularly.

3. Buy and EXACTO Pour Test Kit to test your bartenders regularly (preferably before a shift). You can even offer a reward to the most accurate of the week.
