Merge Article[edit]

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)

Trim up[edit]

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.

Shot size[edit]

35 ml is more common in Scotland as well, and 35 is known as a "half" rather than a single. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:24, 16 March 2012 (UTC)


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.[1]. But it also says this is "44 ml (1.5 ounce) of 40% ... spirits", which would imply US ounces??

I wanted to fix the excess precision in the table; I guarantee no one defines the shot as 42.62 ml. But now I'm not sure what to change it to. Kendall-K1 (talk) 12:41, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

How to measure liquor in a bar[edit]

I've been trying to measure all our liquers at the bar and I dont really know how to even start.. can anyone help me take the first step??? Finah Drua (talk) 07:41, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Not here. This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject. Kendall-K1 (talk) 12:23, 19 June 2016 (UTC)


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?[edit]

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)

Do you have a source? Kendall-K1 (talk) 13:40, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Pre-pro reference[edit]

I removed the following:

Most shot glasses are found in the United States, but shot glasses from before the 1940s are very rare.[1]


  1. ^ "The Pre-Prohibition Collector's Resource Site". Retrieved October 16, 2010.

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)

New Zealand[edit]

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 (talk) 23:07, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
