People like to eat; but not everyone eats the same way. Some eat a certain way due to health problems, and others are following the latest weight-loss trend. And yet others follow a lifestyle.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re increasing a recipe or decreasing it — the procedure for adjusting the ingredient quantities for a different number of portions is the same. We call this scaling a recipe. When scaling a recipe it’s important to know how to convert back and forth between different measurements. The first thing you need to do is calculate your conversion factor, which is a number you’re going to use to convert all the quantities. There’s a tiny bit of math involved, but it’s OK to use a calculator — that’s what they’re there for! To find your conversion factor, simply divide the desired number of servings by the original number of servings. The resulting number is your conversion factor. Keep in mind; some ingredients will have a ‘weight’ or percentage of importance in scaling, and so will need to be adjusted differently.
There is of course no ‘initial fix’ to a fully stocked bar. It is an ongoing process requiring the addition of certain liquors etc. at a time when there becomes a demand for them. Most or all of the ingredients below are considered essential bar-stock, and should act only as a foundation to a well stocked bar. Keep in mind, some of these can be skipped if you or your ‘patrons’ (Read: drinkking buddies) don’t like them. But it’s always fun to have some room to experiment.
Deciphering between the different cooking abbreviations and their proper unit of measurement can help make sure your dish comes out exactly as imagined. Often times, different books will use different abbreviations, which can cause confusion when putting together a dish.
How much is a peck, a pint, or a pinch? Need a refresher on how many cups are in a quart, or teaspoons in a tablespoon? Sometimes doubling or halving a recipe can be a bit… tricky. Or an ingredient will come in an unexpected container.
