Bar Measurements

Most of the mixed drink recipes in our database I use ounces as the measurement for the drink recipes. Unfortunately, many people are not used to using this kind of measurement. I have made a couple of charts and a unit converter to help you with the conversions.

Splash

Whenever I say, "Splash" I mean a small amount. This small amount could be used to color a mixed drink or to add a little bit of taste to the drink. Please use your judgment on this one.

Dash

Whenever I say, "Dash" I mean a very small amount (smaller than splash). It could be a few drops like 5 or 6 drops.

Float

Whenever I say, "Float" I mean a layer. It is a small amount that goes on top of the mixed drink. Please use your judgment.

Part

"Part" means any amount you want. It could be 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 2 ounces, 1 cup or any other amount you want. It all depends on how big you want your drink to be.
