Do you own the “tool” from this picture? If not, preparing a Malibu Rum cocktail might become a difficult task, therefore let’s read a little.
Whether you are just fancying with cocktails and you are preparing them for your own use or you have just started to learn about drinks preparation for taking it as a job, proportions and quantities of ingredients in a cocktail sometimes create confusion.
Let’s jump a little over specialized terms like “oz” or “shot” and see what they really mean. In the end, you will be able to create fantastic drinks using other “tools” you have in your kitchen (especially tablespoons):
1 oz translates into one ounce and it equals 2 tablespoons of that requested ingredient. It is also the measure unit for 30ml.
1 shot means 3 tablespoons or 45ml.
1 cup means 240 ml or 8 oz.
After we talked about what those “alien measurements” stand for, let’s get a little into nutrition also, while it is related to the famous “oz”.
Therefore, for 1 oz of Malibu Rum (or 30ml of that drink) we have the following nutrition facts:
49-51 kcal (Calories)
215 kj (Energy)
5.4 g Carbs (Carbohydrates)
8 mg of Sodium

As a little joke: no fats, low alcohol volume and sweet taste: what would a woman require more from this drink?
