I know when I’ve gone through bartending books and various drink recipes, I see measurements for a splash and a dash and a shot and pony and a jigger and what does this all mean?!
Sometimes we need help, so I’m here to help. I have a created a measurement chart for you, below.
|Dash*||1/32 oz.||0.92 mL||¼ tsp|
|Splash**||1/16 oz.||1.84 mL||½ tsp|
|Teaspoon||1/16 oz.||4.92 mL||1 tsp|
|Tablespoon||½ oz.||14.78 mL||3 tsps|
|Pony||1 oz||29.57 mL||2 tbsps|
|Jigger||1 ½ oz||44.36 mL||3 tbsps|
|Wineglass||4 oz||118.29 mL||0.5 cups|
|½ Fresh Lime||½ oz.||14.78 mL||3 tsps|
|½ Fresh Lemon||½ oz to ¾ oz.||22.18 mL||3 to 4.5 tsps|
*A dash can refer to 4 or 5 drops. This is to taste.
**A splash can refer to a small amount as well. This is to taste.
I hope this helps! If you have any questions feel free to email me and let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, happy and safe drinking.
