Just like our standard barspoons, but 4” longer! They have twisted centers to allow for a nice grip, as well as provide a great way to layer beverages or add carbonated components. They also have a weighted end or “teardrop” to counterbalance perfectly while you stir. So why would you use the longer spoon over the standard size? First and foremost: Total personal preference. Secondly? The extra length can help with a nifty technique known as double stirring. And if you really want to impress a room, try quadruple stirring with 2 of these in each hand. Good luck!
