Know your limits
Measuring spirit nips when pouring from a bottle is very important to drinking responsibly. A 30ml spirit nip (40% alc) is the equivalent of one standard drink and it is very easy to go over the standard drink limit if not using measures. If in doubt, please refer to the alcohol volume percentage on the label. If the alcohol volume varies, so will the standard drink measure so calculate your measures carefully.
