 Tending Bar: Conversions

Within our site, almost all measurements are given in ounces. If you aren't sure how much an ounce is, an ounce is approximately a 2 count while pouring with a speed pourer, an ounce and a half is a good size for a shot, and four ounces fills a martini glass. Or, in metric, an ounce is 29.5 milliliters.

Tips for accurate pouring are available.

A shot glass or jigger is usually 1.5 ounces, but sometimes 2 ounces with a measuring line at 1.5 ounces. You can also buy (in the U.S.) "short shot" glasses or "pony shots" which are 1 ounce. Pony shots are usually used to mix martinis, manhattans, and rob roys.
