The Counting Method
Free pouring is a good way of pouring a shot without a shot glass. Furthermore, it makes for an awesome party trick that you can learn quite easily. A shot is 25ml which is just under 1 ounce and so, you can use the counting method to pour a shot. To pour a shot in the UK without a shot glass, you are looking at using a two-count method.
So, use a standard glass and pour water into it while counting up to two. Then take the liquid and measure it in a shot glass. You can then practice this using the two count until you can accurately pour a shot without a shot glass. Around 10-30 minutes of practice should set you on your way.
Use Measuring Spoons
If free pouring is not your thing then this might be the better option. You can use single or double measuring spoons to measure out a shot as required.
Medicine Cup of Spoon
Medicine bottles will either come with a measuring cup or a spoon. These are brilliant for measuring shots as they will come with weather 2.5ml or 5ml measurements. So, you might require 10 x 2.5m measurements or 5 x 5ml measurements.
How Many Shots Are in a Bottle?
