As a lecturer currently writing course packs in bar and beverage i have a few contrdictions on the topic of bar glassware - classic and modern
Please indiate the question number in your answer and the country from where you are - it seriously helps in understanding cultural nomenclature differences. If possible please provide capacity and reference source

What is the capacity of a pousse cafe glass?

http://www.drinklab....e.php?ID=Pousse cafe glass say 6 oz
quite a differnce although shape is quite quite similar
