Sugar, Thank you this is a keeper! If people get tired of the drinks we can share off the list. Like all you have sent. I have that bartender friend that I wrote in Florda and one in New Mexico.

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
 
Bar Measurements
________________________________________
Standard Bar Measurements (US)
1 part	=	any equal part
1 dash/splash	=	1/32 ounce 
1 teaspoon (tsp)	=	1/8 ounce 
1 tablespoon (tblsp)	=	3/8 ounce 
1 pony	=	1 ounce 
1 jigger/bar glass	=	1 1/2 ounces 
1 shot (*)	=	1 1/2 ounces 
1 snit	=	3 ounces 
1 wineglass	=	4 ounces 
1 split	=	6 ounces 
1 cup	=	8 ounces 
1 pint (pt)	=	16 ounces 
1 quart (qt)	=	32 ounces 
1 fifth	=	25.6 ounces (1/5 gallon) 
1 gallon (gal)	=	128 ounces 
Metric Conversions
1 fluid ounce (oz)	=	29.573 milliliters = appx. 3 centiliters
(cl)
1 quart (qt)	=	9.4635 deciliters
1 gallon (gal)	=	3.7854 liters

1 milliliter (ml)	=	1/30 ounce 
1 centiliter (cl)	=	1/3 ounce 
1 deciliter (dl)	=	3 1/2 ounces 
1 liter (l)	=	34 ounces
Other Measurements
English	Metric
Fifth	=	4/5 Quart	=	1/5 Gal.	=	25.6 oz
=>   	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
Half-Gallon	=	64.0 oz	   =>   	1750 ml	=	59.7 oz
Quart	=	32.0 oz	   =>   	1000 ml	=	34.1 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.
