```Hi all this can be a bit confusing for some, but if you are like me and have
bartender's in the family
Then it is not so much
Here is what I found:
Alcohol Conversions

Other Measurements
English	Metric

=>   	750 ml	=	25.5 oz
Pint (pt)	=	1/2 Quart	=	16.0 oz	   =>   	500
ml	=	17.0 oz
Half-Pint	=	8.0 oz	   =>   	200 ml	=	6.8 oz

Note:
(*) A "shotglass" is usually 1.5 ounces, but sometimes 2 ounces with a
measuring line at 1.5 ounces. You can also buy (in US) "short shot" glasses
or "pony shots" which are 1 ounce. Pony shots are usually used with
martinis, manhattans, and rob roys.

If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique
challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more
gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.
