How Many Ounces is a Shot?

When you are mixing a drink a shot is one ounce of alcohol. However, if you are making shots such as kamakazee’s or others then the shot can be an ounce and a half or more. This is because you use more than one ounce of different alcohols to make the shooter. Many people when mixing a drink will use a jigger rather than an ounce which is 1.5 ounces.
