Larry, they stopped making fifths about 40 years ago. One liter and 750ml nowadays.
No I actually came here chasing a bad guy that screwed several friends out a lot of money. I started enjoying how friendly the site was and got hooked.
Not having a grading service running the site was a blessing. We can speak freely without the fear of being banned.
Oh, that place. Stalin would have a field day there.....
There you go again. Asking me to do math after I started drinking.
Congrats. Lifting a big old mug of vodka and cranberry to you
Not sure about the cranberrie, but to be sure, I like things neat......
I feel that way about my bourbon. I like just enough cranberry to flavor the vodka. My drinks are pink
33.8 ounces! If your standard pour in whatever bar you work at is 1.25 ounces, you get 27 "pours" with .05 ounces left over.
So when did "a shot" get downsized from 1.5 ounces?
Sometimes, I would go to a bar and sit right in front of the person making drinks and ask them, "What is your standard pour?" I always got a kick out of it when the person replied, "A shot!"
I have a set in my collection of four identical shot glasses that are 8ozs. each. I was always tempted to bring this set into just such an establishment, put them on the bar in front of the bartender and say, "Just leave the bottle!"
You see, there is no standard measurement for a "shot". A lot depends on the sizes of the glassware and the policies of the bar. Some establishments use a 1oz. measure, or a 1.25oz. measure, or a 1.5oz. measure and there are still some bars in clubs like American Legion, VFW, Elks, Moose, etc. that still use 7/8ths oz. as their standard pour.
Don't get mad at me. I'm just the piano player.
If I drank 8 oz of Scotch I'd be shot.
