How many tablespoons are in a shot of whiskey?

A single 'shot' can vary from 20 to 60 mL, depending upon what country[1] you live in. I'll assume you are in the US, in which case a single shot is defined as 44 mL or 1.5 fluid ounces. 1 tablespoon equals 14.7868 mL. Use three of them, and that is ~44 mL.

Also asked, is a shot glass An Oz?

Since a "shot" is typically a spirit with 40 percent alcohol, this makes the shot 1.5 imp fl oz or 42.6 ml (though many establishments serve a "standard drink" of 1 oz). A double shot in North America may be either 2.5 or 3 fluid ounces.

What is a shot measure in UK?

The 1963 Act formalized the legal measures by which spirits and other alcoholic beverages should be dispensed, namely 1/4 gill (35.5 ml), 1/5 gill (28.4 ml) or 1/6 gill (23.7 ml), but this was replaced in 1985 by 25ml and 35ml for single measures, with double measures of 50ml or 70ml being permitted in 2001.

How much is a shot and a jigger?

It equals 1 fluid ounce. And, finally, a "jigger" equals 1 1/2 fluid ounces. But the term "jigger" is also used to refer to the double-barreled measuring vessel itself, which, like a shot glass, can vary in size. A "large jigger" is 2 fluid ounces.
