Measure twice, cut once. That’s an old carpentry saying that illustrates how the most important part of cutting wood is how you measure it. It’s the same thing when making drinks. Maybe for mixologists it should be measure twice, serve once.

The standard measure for making cocktails is 1.5 ounces. You’ve probably seen stainless steel jiggers at your local bar or for sale in kitchen stores. They’re great for making a drink that calls for exact proportions.

Short cocktails usually require an exact proportion. You can increase the standard measure that you’re using but remember not to change the proportions.

When making longer drinks that mostly consist of mixers, measurements aren’t as important.
