Hey. Anyone have any views on merging this article with Jigger (bartending). That stub article seems incredibly pointless on its own and very internationally unrepresentative, and I'm certain it could be merged into this one. Cheers. ★KEYS★ (talk) 23:51, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
Hi, I've just had a good hack at some of the explanations. (My apologies if I trashed your stuff) There's little or no external support for any of them even existing outside this article - let alone being supported by the facts. I have however removed some of the "debunking" text, mainly because without references it's just piling OR onto OR. Oh, and I found some nice earlier refs predating the (vague) OED one.

Canada still seems to be confused about units, all these years after metrication. There is a source at Standard drink that says the standard drink in Canada is 13.6 grams.. But it also says this is "44 ml (1.5 ounce) of 40% ... spirits", which would imply US ounces??

I have removed a table and some text from the Jigger section. The product catalog is unsourced and does not belong here per WP:NOTCATALOG. The rest of the text seems to be mostly WP:OR. The one source cited just says "during and immediately following Prohibition, recipes often carried measurements that are not common today." This does not support the text.

korea is missing – why?
In Korea, they have "soju glasses", which look pretty much exactly like schnaps glasses, and which hold pretty much the same amount, i.e., 2oz. If no one objects, I will add it to the list. Theonemacduff (talk) 06:06, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
I removed the following:
Most shot glasses are found in the United States, but shot glasses from before the 1940s are very rare.
I checked the source and the statement is not verified. I think that "most shot glasses are found in the United States" is not a verifiable fact, and "shot glasses from before the 1940s are very rare" is too vague to verify - how rare is "very"? However the source is likely useful for other information. -- IamNotU (talk) 12:38, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Does anyone have a reference for shots in New Zealand? From my experience, 15 mL is a single and 30 mL a double (so probably one of the stingiest servings of alcohol), but I don't have a reference for it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:07, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
