Half pint, pint, fifth(of a gallon, or .75 liters, or 750 ML), and half gallons (handles, 1.75 liters)

A fifth is a fifth of a gallon, a pint is an eighth of a gallon. So the fifth is larger

1 half Imperial pint = 284.130742 mls

Some call it a half-pint.

Two good ones

One fifth of whiskey (or similar liquers) = 757.08236 milliliters. A typical liquer bottle found in Europe would hold 750 milliliters. In the US, we may still ask for a "fifth" or 'pint" or "half-pint" of liquor, but if you look at the bottom of the bottle, it will be marked "750", "375" or "200" ml.

If you are assuming the typical "pint"-sized liquor (375 mL), then simple arithmetic would show that 2 pints = 1 "fifth" (750 mL). If we are talking a true pint of fluid (500 mL), then 1.5 pints = 1 "fifth".

Here are the most common sizes and their English unit equivalences, which are only an approximation: 50 mL (shot), 250 mL ("half-pint"), 375 mL (tenth), 500 mL ("pint"), 750 mL (fifth), 1000 mL = 1 L ("quart"), 1.75 L (half-gallon or handle)

A mickey of liquor is a bottle of 375mL of it (a pint).

a fifth of liquor (volume) is equal to 750 milliliters.
