1.75 liter "half gallon" or "handle" bottle = 59.2 oz or 39 shots.
There are many times when you need to use math in the bar. One of the most important times is when we need to know how much liquor to stock and that requires knowing how many shots you can pour from the standard bottle.
Whether you are stocking a bar or planning a party, the information in the following chart should be helpful.
The most important question is: How many cócktails can I make with one bottle of liquor? The answer to this is, of course, going to vary from drink to drink and there are a few things to consider.
The average cócktail uses:
1 1/2 ounces (the average shot) of a base liquor (i.e. vodka, gin, rum, etc.)
Liqueurs are typically poured at 1/2 to 3/4 ounce
Accent juices (i.e. lemon and lime) typically use 1/4 to 1/2 ounce
Filling a highball or tall drink with juice or soda often requires 4 to 6 ounces
With this information and the recipes you intend to serve, you can estimate how many bottles of each liquor you will need to create a certain number of drinks.
Cócktails are an essential to every good party. Whether you are having a fun get together with your friends or hosting a formal dinner, a good drink will up the entire feel of your party. If you thought mixing drinks isn't easy and it takes too much effort, think again.
