Ok, I've now got everything I need to make this, but I don't have anything to measure the ounces. Maybe I'll just change "ounce" to "shot glass full".

High ball glasses aren't the tall skinny ones. I thought those were referred to as Tom Collins glasses, but I might be wrong. High ball glasses are short and kind of wide.

A Collins, (a name of a drink) is served in a high ball glass, which is a tall, 8oz glass. Short and wide are cocktail glasses.

Ronjohn, originally, we used shot glasses to measure ingredients for mixed cocktails, so I say, go for it. The more we expanded the repetoire the more we felt we really should invest in a measured ounce glass. It's not that big a deal, if you eyeball it or measure to the gram, as long as you enjoy the results, yes?

So, in a reference to the Pit...have you had enough to answer my question, yet??

I'm sure I'll enjoy it, I just didn't geta chance to make it last night.

And to answer the other question, no.
It's apparently going to take a heck of a lot more than it would the average person for me to get around to answering that. Even the green faery couldn't get it out of me last night.

Strange, but that seems to be ALL I have left from every set of glasses anyone has ever given me over the years.

Do you think it's because they got the least amount of use over the years?? I seem to purchase cocktail or 'on the rocks' glasses every year, nice sets of 4. Invariably, one always breaks either from hand washing, or some other accident. I have 4 sets of three lovely glasses now!

That sounds really, really tasty. I'm a bit of a blue curacao fan ...

I just realised that I've totally knackered myself by joining these american forums without really knowing how to convert oz to kg. ;) I'll just have to learn or use an online tool for the meantime :)
