16.

I was a bartender at Applebees one summer when I was in college. The manager knew exactly how many shots were in the bottle. Host pouring anything could get you fired, in a hurry. Speed pours, exact pours, everytime or GTFO.

Stingy, sleazy, dirty bastards. Especially dirty. I once saw the assistant manager frantically trying to get a bag of fries in the fryer--he dropped the bag, the frozen fries went everywhere. He scooped them up off the floor, into the fryer. If you know anything about restaurant kitchen floors, it's tht they a slushy with black greasy filth, broken glass, you name it.

Not that I have to belabor the point, but don't eat at Applebees, if you haven't already figured that out in life.

Eight shots per pint of the cheapest vodka in the store, that's all I know.

FTFA: about 16 shots or 16 cocktails.

Not my Manhattans

750ml/1.5 fluid oz = 16.9

Math is hard

I never knew that.
Probably because I don't carry a shot glass in my car.

I've been working on how many ice-filled 24-ounce insulated glasses in a 1.75L handle, but I keep losing count.

I've-filled glass?

Poseur!

I showed off this math problem, while I was drunk, in college, trying to explain conversions and percentages. I did not get laid that night.

About 4 if you're using the right shot glasses.

I'd have thought such a bunch of tightwads would use optics.

Anywhere from 1 to 16 depending on how heavy your pours are

what silly monotremes are using shot glasses.
 
2022-01-28 1:13:59 PM  
Depends how thirsty I am.

Normally about 10, but sometimes as few as 5.

/ow, my liver

So if you are hosting a party with 10 guests, estimate that each guest will have around three drinks.

Don't bring that lightweight shiat to my house.

And I bet you hate improper fractions, too. Fine, the classroom way:

[750ml / (3/2) fluid oz)]*[1 fluid oz / (14787/500) ml] = 16.9

In all my other classes, l study hard and remember the answers. In math, they go and change the numbers in the test questions. How is that fair?
 
2022-01-28 3:46:28 PM  
Apparently there was no math.

Ftfa
A half pint, 200 milliliters, will yield four shots.
A pint, 375 milliliters, has eight shots.

1) half of 375 isn't 200
2) a pint is 568ml. Where are they getting these measures?
 
2022-01-28 3:55:48 PM  
Stick to the decimal system. Serve 100 proof.

US pints are smaller than UK pints. 16 fl oz instead of 20.

Think the fl oz may be slightly different, too.
 
2022-01-28 4:06:31 PM  
No, because I use the Metric system.

Japanese business man at my bar with his assistant who ordered a small pour of scotch for him. So I said then "just a nip?". I had just learned the term.

My magnum holds 6 shots.

Could be more, really crappy places use 1oz pours.

29ml per oz
750ml per bottle
26- oz per bottle

Define "shot".
Yes, I know conversions.

1 oz = 30 ml, for us (well, 29.573 or so, but for the sake of math, 30 ml is easier.)
1 shot = 1.5 oz = 45 ml (well, 44.360 or so...)
750ml/45ml = 16.667 shots, not accounting for spillage. Usually, I just go with 16 shots per 750ml.

An imperial fl oz is 28.4130625 ml. The wiki page I got that from tells me it's to do with the US customary gallon being based on a wine gallon and the introduction of the international inch, then I remember that metric units exist and my eyes glaze over.

750ml/45ml = 16.667 shots, not accounting for spillage. Usually, I just go with 16 shots per 750ml.


For some reason, standard spirits bottles are 70 cl or 1 l in the UK. A wine bottle's 750 ml, so from a logistics and shipping/containerisation standpoint, it seems odd to use a slightly smaller bottle.

Don't drink in pubs much, but back in the day, a single was 25 ml, a double was 50 ml, and lots of places did a cheeky 35 ml shot instead of the 25.

Yep - for us, 1 ounce = 29.5735296 ml, and it all snowballs from there. Trying to juggle US vs. UK units when I was still brewing was a PITA, especially when ordering equipment.
