A "jigger" can either be a measuring device used by bartenders, or a unit of measure (typically 1.5 ounces).

As a measuring device, the typical jigger is a metal, hour-glass shaped receptacle, which can measure two different amounts. The larger end would measure a "jigger" (1.5 ounces) and the smaller end would measure a "pony" (1 ounce).
