I like this version: "A dram is a measure of whisky, the size of which depends on the generosity of the pourer".
Assuming that a dram is a standard measure of spirits, then (in this country at least) a standard measure is 30ml (millilitres). This is 3 cL.
a. A unit of weight in the U.S. Customary System equal to 1/16 of an ounce or 27.34 grains (1.77 grams).
b. A unit of apothecary weight equal to 1/8 of an ounce or 60 grains (3.89 grams).
c. A small amount; a bit.
Take your pick depending on how much you want to drink
