For accuracy in measurement, a single container meant for measuring alcohol can be used, such as a jigger or shot glass. Both measure approximately 1 ½ fluid ounces, so using a jigger or a shot glass to measure 1 part vodka and 2 parts orange juice would be 1 shot (1 ½ ounces) of vodka and 2 shots (3 ounces) of orange juice.
