Preparing your favorite spiked tea this weekend? Let's find out how many ounces in a liter of liquid you'll need in your Instant Pot before getting started.
How many ounces in a liter
There are approximately 35 fluid ounces in 1 liter of liquid. That's close to the 33 fluid ounces in 1 quart.
When it comes to entertaining guests, you want to ensure that the drinks keep pouring but if your liquid measurements are off and you don't have enough refreshments to entertain, guess who the blame will fall on.
To ensure this doesn't happen let's make sure that you have all that you need.
Using our Instant Pot Iced Tea as an example, the ingredients call for 8 cups of water to yield 6 servings. With 8 ounces in 1 cup, as discussed in our article, How Many Ounces In A Cup, that's 64 fluid ounces- close to 2 liters.
Now, for a party or large gathering, you would need to stretch this number, but you get a good idea that a liter of liquid is not that much.
In fact, a liter of liquid can fit inside a medium-size pitcher, large carafe, or sports water bottle.
How to measure ounces in a liter
One way to measure ounces in a liter is to grab your milk or juice container. Most milk and juice jugs can hold up to 32 ounces, in which case, you'll need to fill it a quarter of the way afterward to reach 35 fluid ounces.
Another way to measure a liter of liquid is by filling a large, wide-mouth glass mason jar which typically holds between 32s to 64 oz.
And last but not least, using a glass 32 oz measuring cup and filling it to the tp of the nozzle will produce 35 ounces as well.
Instant Pot meals that use ounces and liters
Any Instant Pot meal can be stretched to utilize liters, but here are a few of our common ones:
- Instant Pot Peach Ginger Iced Tea
- Instant Pot Lucky Charms Hot Chocolate Bombs
- Instant Pot Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Bomb
- Instant Pot Valentine's Hot Chocolate Bombs
For our Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Bombs, 1 cup of caramel and 24 ounces of candy melts are used, however, you can easily stretch this to use 35 ounces of candy melts with 1 1/2 cup of caramel.
This should yield approximately 16-18 servings which is perfect for large gatherings.
For the Peach Ginger Iced Tea, it requires 8 cups of water and 4 fresh peaches. Already surpassing the liter mark, you can stretch this recipe to 3-4 liters or 12-24 servings by doubling the water, peaches, and black tea bags.
And bonus, all these recipes are freezer-friendly!
