What is a shot?
A shot is a small serving of liquor, typically around 44 milliliters. This is the standard shot size in the United States and most other countries. When it comes to alcohol content, this serving size is equivalent to one beer or one glass of wine.
A shot is the perfect size for a quick drink and a great way to get the party started. But how do you measure a shot without a shot glass? And how many ml are in one shot?
How many ml in one shot?
In the United States, one shot is equivalent to 44 milliliters or 1.5 ounces.
Most other countries use the metric system, so their shot sizes are expressed in milliliters. For example, in Canada, a shot is 30 ml, while in Australia it’s 25 ml.
If you’re traveling to a country that uses the metric system, it’s helpful to know how many milliliters are in a shot. That way you can order your drinks with confidence.
What Is A Shot Glass?
A shot glass is a small glass that is used for a small serving of spirits or liquor that is typically taken in one gulp. It is typically made of glass or metal and has a capacity of 1.5 ounces or 44 milliliters.
How to measure a shot without a shot glass
If you don’t have a shot glass, there are other ways to measure your liquor. In order to get 44 milliliters, you can use 3 tablespoons or 9 teaspoons.
If you’re using a tablespoon, make sure it’s a level tablespoon and not heaped. A heaped tablespoon is about 20% larger than a level tablespoon and will result in a shot that is too large.
If you don’t have any measuring tools, you can also estimate. A good rule of thumb is that one shot is about the size of a deck of cards or a dice.
What is a Jigger?
A jigger is a small tool that is used to measure liquor. It typically has two different size measures, one for 1.5 fluid ounces or 44.36 milliliters (the standard shot size) and one for 3 ounces or 89 milliliters (a double shot). Jiggers are a great way to make sure you’re pouring the perfect shot every time.
What is the difference between a shot and a jigger?
A shot is 1.5 ounces or 44 milliliters, while a jigger is 1.5 fluid ounces or 44.3625 milliliters. A jigger is a little bit bigger than a shot, so it can hold slightly more liquor.
How many shots in a bottle?
A standard bottle of liquor is 750 milliliters, which is about 25.4 ounces. This means that there are about 16 shots in a bottle of liquor.
How many shots are in a liter?
There are about 22 shots in a liter of liquor. This is because a liter is equivalent to 1,000 milliliters, which is about 33.8 ounces.
How many shots in a cup?
A cup is 8 fluid ounces or 236.59 milliliters. This means that there are about 5.6 shots in a cup of liquor.
What is the difference between a shot and a double shot?
A shot is 1.5 ounces or 44 milliliters, while a double shot is 3 ounces or 89 milliliters. A double shot is twice the size of a regular shot and contains twice the amount of liquor.
What are some common shots?
Some common shots include the following:
- Tequila shot: A tequila shot is a shot of tequila that is typically served with salt and lime.
- Whiskey shot: A whiskey shot is a shot of whiskey that is typically served neat or on the rocks.
- Vodka shot: A vodka shot is a shot of vodka that is typically served neat or with a mixer.

Two Types of Shots
Single Shot: A single shot contains 1.5 ounces or 44 milliliters of liquor. This is the standard shot size in the United States and most other countries.
Double Shot: A double shot contains 3 ounces or 89 milliliters of liquor. This is twice the amount of liquor as a single shot and is typically used for strong cocktails such as tequila sunrises and Long Island iced teas.
Things To Consider When Measuring A Shot
Shot Glass Size: The size of the shot glass will determine how much liquor you pour into it. If you’re using a standard 1-ounce shot glass, then you’ll pour 1 ounce (28 grams) of liquor into it. If you’re using a 2-ounce shot glass, then you’ll pour 2 ounces (56 grams) of liquor into it, etc.
Country: The country where you’re measuring your shots may also have an impact on the amount of liquor you pour into your glass. In the United States, for example, the standard shot size is 1 ounce (28 grams). But in Europe, the standard size is often smaller at just 0.5 ounces (14 grams). So be sure to check the measures before pouring your shots!
