# 5 Gallon Bag in Box

"How many drinks will I get from one 5 gallon bag in box" is a common question. Although there is not a set number, let’s see how to get a rough estimate of how many drinks you would get from one 5 gallon bag in box.

1. There are 640 total ounces per each 5 gallon bag in box.
2. Your soda fountain system will mix water and syrup at a 5 to 1 ratio.
3. Divide cup size by 6 for number of ounces of syrup used per cup.
Example for 10 oz. cup: 10 ÷ 6 = approximately 1.7
There are approximately 1.7 oz. of syrup used per each 10 oz. cup
4. Divide ounces. of syrup used per cup by 640.
Example: 640 ÷ 1.7 = approximately 376
5. This is the estimated number of servings per 5 gallon bag in box, not factoring in ice**

## Estimated Servings Based on Cup Size

Cup Size Total oz. of syrup used Total number of servings per each 5 gallon bag in box**
7 oz. 1 to 2 640
9 oz. 1 to 2 320 to 640
10 oz. 2 320
12 oz. 2 to 3 214 to 320
16 oz. 3 214
20 oz. 4 160
24 oz. 4 to 5 128 to 160
32 oz. 6 to 7 107 to 128

** These estimates do not take into account the amount of ice in each cup. More ice per cup would require less syrup, thus more servings per each 5 gallon bag in box.
