How Large is a Large Drink?
It's impossible knowing the real size of drinks in restaurants because they use different cup sizes.
When you order a small drink in a fast food restaurant, do you know how big it will be? If you ask for the same size in another restaurant, you'll probably get an entirely different size than you expected. That's because there aren't any standards for cup sizes in restaurants.
Meanwhile, a lot of people poke fun at Starbucks for having strange names like "Venti" for their drinks, but in reality, the Venti is probably one of the few cases where the name actually means something. Venti is Italian for "Twenty", so a Venti is a 20 ounce drink.
It would be so much easier if you could order your drink by size, in ounces, at any restaurant... instead of ambiguous names like Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, etc.
Instead of asking for a Small Coke, and wondering how big it will actually be, you could simply say "I'll have an 8 Oz Coke", and know exactly how big it will be before it arrives.
If nothing else, if restaurants still want to use generic names like Small, Medium, and Large, they should at least put the sizes in ounces next the prices on the menu.
