How much is a fifth of Captain Morgan?

Answer

A fifth of Captain Morgan rum contains 25 ounces, or 750 milliliters, of liquor. This equates to approximately 17 shots, with each shot containing 1.5 ounces of liquor.

While many still refer to 750-milliliter bottles of liquor as “fifths,” the name has become outdated. The term “fifth” originally referred to one-fifth of a gallon or 25.6 fluid ounces. The 750-milliliter bottle, which is the standard bottle size sold in stores today, is approximately 1 percent smaller than a true “fifth.”

In the late 1970s, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States agreed on six standard bottle sizes for liquor and all were based on metric system measurements. The 750-milliliter bottle replaced the old “fifth” when these standards became official in 1979.
