Measurement Chart for Bartenders

It’s completely appropriate that bartending is also known as the art and science of mixology. As a bartender, you need to know who to mix and measure not only a jigger, or shot, but how much to add when a recipe calls for a dash of bitters or how many bottles of wine to send out when a customer orders a jeroboam.

The following table shows standard and metric measurements for common and uncommon alcohol quantities:

Measurement Metric Equivalent Standard Equivalent Measurement Metric Equivalent Standard Equivalent
1 dash 0.9 ml. 1⁄32 oz. 1 fifth 755.2 ml. 25.6 oz.
1 teaspoon 3.7 ml. 1⁄8 oz. 1 quart 944.0 ml. 32 oz.
1 tablespoon 11.1 ml. 3⁄8 oz. 1 imperial quart 1.137 liter 38.4 oz.
