I'm not used to the "dash measuring system" as it applies to liquids
(I think the killer bees made off with the dash instructional material the U.S. needed to implement it)
Damn those killer bees! I swear they're coming! This is the year! I know I said it last year, but, this is definitely the year! Look out! Killer Bees!

Martiki, come on down to San Diego, we've got'em already. I don;t think they'll get up to SF, 1 of those August frosts'll kill'em.

Surely a 'Dash' applies to the rapid wrist-movement - while the hand is connected to the bottle - that's directed above the glass - that's about to receive said liquid - into a concoction that's designed to spread merriment throughout all present?
Or in other words, the dash is the barman's perogative. Any so-called 'measurement' is intrinsically wrong.

Damn that My Bar site. I got so excited, and it said I could make 44 drinks.
I have more than 44 liquors in my bar (about 1/4 of that rums), I could make 44 drinks with water and vodka!
and a dash is the bartender's deal. In my opinion, however, lay super light on the Pernod. If you can't distinguish its flavor, you've done the job right : )
