Proof: alcohol concentration

Up to the 20th century, alcoholic spirits were assessed in the UK by mixing with
gunpowder and testing the mixture to see if it would still burn; spirit that just
passed the test was said to be at 100 proof.


In honor of the Corralejo effect I offer a new subcategory of Corralejo and distance.

One shot glass of Corralejo = 1 1/2 once = 60 milliliters (we use the big ones) usually last

Therefore the beach is 369 milliliters or 6.15 dog walks in length
