Thats what I hear, they can serve you the two as separate things and you can mix them yourself. Also if you want a triple shot of measured liquor they should serve you a double in one glass and a single in the other, but not all 3 in the same glass. Or at least thats how it used to be.They should serve you with a half pint glass of bitter, a bottle of light ale and a pint pot.
Never ever heard of mixed drinks being against weights and measures? Not sure where that came from, same as not having more than two shots in one glass?Thats what I hear, they can serve you the two as separate things and you can mix them yourself.

My ex FIL played for Blackburn (pre it being a professional sport) as a striker and he used to tell us how he sharpened his studs before some games. Also showed us his legs which were scarred like you would not believe!The nail heads of which became razor sharp and exposed if you walked on the road in them.
I clearly recall some male teachers especially enjoying humiliating boys in front of girl classmates (mixed school), they could become quite brutal. There was also psychological bullying.School discipline in the 70's & 80's
Primary school - cane was the primary method, but there was the odd teacher who took things a bit further.
I seen myself and others being kneed on the side of the leg and having blackboard dusters chucked at you.
Secondary education - leather straps.
I remember as clear as day, the female teachers in particular would send you to the principals office as he could really nail your hand with the strap.
B@stard was about 6 foot 3, but he used to get his heels onto the low radiator pipes to get a bit of extra height in to the swing.
The trick was to try to get as much heat into your hands as possible using the radiators on the way.
From memory, draught beers can be sold in 1/2 pints, 1/3 pints or multiples thereof so mixing two drinks is ok as long as they are both 1/2 pints, similarly spirits are sold in 25ml or multiples thereof, with no mention of how many in one glass. Things do change so I may be wrong.....Maybe it's one of those 'urban myths ' things . I will ask my mate when I see her next , she is a licencee.
Feel free to use full-stops.10 years after leaving school I found myself in the headmaster's office doing business with him.
He didn't realise who I was until the deal was done and I revealed myself as an ex pupil, he immediately changed to 'headmaster' mode and remembered where I lived and the fact that I was indeed a spiv, waster and that there was still a sale on spines at Woolworth should I want to get myself one.
He also demanded that I remember my maths teacher, I genuinely couldn't, he insisted that I must remember such a nasty piece of work, wanting to make my escape by now I admitted that I did remember the nasty piece to which he responded 'I thought that you may recall my wife'.
