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!

Well, that wraps up the mystery of how many ounces or ml are in a shot glass. If you want to get more tequila for your buck, you can always jump on a plane to Israel, Italy, or Japan… not sure if the airfare will help with any savings!
