Starting by looking at the mechanisms for the tray, I wrote a short python code printing the alcohol name, radius (on the tray - always 1 in this case), the angular position and the quantity. The downside is that the fixed number of chosen drinks will divide the total glass volume in the corresponding ratio: easy to process but maybe not tastewise (I rarely drink ). The position and volume correspond to the rotation of the motor.
Example: positions and amount for my mix:
{u'vodka': (1, 3.9269908169872414, 0.3333333333333333), u'cointreau': (1, 5.497787143782138, 0.3333333333333333), u'white_wine': (1, 0.0, 0.3333333333333333)}
