What I thought was going to be a simple article turned into a mathematical nightmare! But fear not, shot lovers; I’ve created the simple table below detailing how many ounces in a shot glass and also how many ml in a shot glass.

Just to add to the complication, shot sizes vary from country to country, plus we have 2 lots of ounce measurements (US fl oz and Imperial fl oz). Thankfully millilitres (ml) is a globally universal measurement; yay, sense at last!
