How much is a shot?
How much is a dash?
A small amount, also known as a splash, or about a full dropper. In our portions, five dashes are equal to one teaspoon.
What difference does it make to shake or stir?
Shaking produces a higher dilution, recommended when the recipe includes fruit juices, simple syrup, cream liqueurs, sour mix, egg, or dairy. Stir when less dilution is desired and ingredients include only spirits, tonics, or bitters.
