Measure Your Liquor with Google Calculator
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and when it comes to drinking you couldn't be more right. Gone are the days when you had to use your Zlotnian calculator (pictured) to figure out how many drinks are in your bottle of liquor. The mad geniuses over at Urban Monarch have gone and figured out yet another way Google can be useful for boozers.
What they don’t tell you is that google understands the unit “shot.” So simple queries like “shots in a pint” or “shots in 750ml” (example) will tell you how many drinks you get of each bottle. (The answers are 10.6 and 16.9).
If you are splitting a bottle with several friends, simple add a “/” and the number of people drinking. So, “shots in 1.5 litres / 5″, tells you that a handle of vodka will give you and four of your buddies 6.7 shots each.

Well, using the handy dandy tool we linked to above, we came up with the following...
1.75 liters = 39.449693 shots
1 US quart = 21.3333333 shots
Hope that gets you there.
