Lately at home I have been transitioning to using metric units for my drinks. After a bit of a struggle at first it seems to make things a lot easier. Especially since I have been trying to make all my drinks conform to 2 oz (60ml) of alcohol total per drink. Allows me to experiment a bit more without getting hammered after the 3rd drink. And when dealing with straight numbers it makes getting the ratios down (like in a vesper) easier. Just a topic for discussion I guess..
The whole metric thing is actually something I struggle with a bit. While I will heartily agree that metric measurements in general make a lot of sense, from a cocktail perspective they seem to make things a little more difficult, especially when trying to convert back and forth, or when trying to show a single recipe using both measurements.
yes, it is a struggle!! but I find it a bit interesting as well, sort of my "breathalyzer test". When I find I cannot do the conversions in my head any more I know I've had enough to drink!!!!!!
