Dan commented on 6/12/2011:

Updated the yield to 12 (small) drinks. This makes the units come out fairly even for making 1 or a few drinks.

The recipes I've seen floating around specify that the vermouth should be infused with orange-cinnamon tea, and half the champagne indicated.

I got the Death & Co book today, and updated the recipe to the specs in it. With 17 oz. of liquid (and assuming a little dilution), I feel comfortable calling this 6 drinks.
