spirit measuring equipment

splatgirl | May 8, 201308:52 AM     12

I just broke my favorite liquid measuring tool for the bar. HUGE DRAT.
It was ~5 ounce borosilicate (lab) glass graduated cylinder. It had a pour spout and--the most critical feature--was marked in OUNCES and milliliters.
I got it at IKEA at least ten years ago.
So far I can't find anything else that has the same features--Pour spout, ounce markings, easy to read, glass.

I have a 4oz version of this, but it doesn't pour cleanly:

This is close, but a little smaller than I'd like:

And this might do in a pinch, but the markings are molded in which makes it much harder to read. OTOH, they won't wear off which afflicts all/most of the newer pyrex measuring stuff.

If you know of a supplier of lab glass anything that comes marked in ounces, or if you have any suggestions for a great bar liquid measuring vessel, I'd love to hear it.
