BAR MEASURMENTS






Some bar measurements are the same as those used in the kitchen, but others are unique to the bar. Mix-drink recipes require measuring the ingredients, just as cooking does. Even the most expert bartender may measure the ingredients of every mix-drink, even though experience permits most to do this by eye and by skillful free-hand pouring. However, to make a perfect drink every time, you must be accurate with the ingredients. Always remember: a drink will be spoiled by being to strong or to weak.
