Serving your new favorite cocktail as a punch for your next shindig would put the party over the top; the problem is, the recipe that you found only gives servings in multiples of liquid ounces. To help speed up the concoction process, the measurements in liquid ounces, which are more familiarly known, should be converted into a larger volume measurement unit like the cup. Proper conversion of fluid ounces to cups can take place with simple math and Internet searches in the very beginning of the mixing, cutting down on spills and soured cocktails.
Things You'll Need
Divide the volume measurement in fluid ounces by 8 to convert to cup measurement. For an example, 72 fluid oz. divided by 8 converts to 9 cups.
Multiply the volume measurement in fluid ounces by 0.125 to also convert it to cups. Continuing with the same example, 72 fluid oz. multiplied by 0.125 converts to 9 cups.
Convert the volume at a special website like Metric-Conversions.org (see Resources). Enter the amount in fluid ounces in the provided space, then click the "Go>" button. The equivalent volume in cups will be displayed in the area below.
