So, last night I had the following (didn't type it up then because I was distracted by pictures):

a goodly ammount of Sour Apple Vodka
a goodly ammount of Raspberry Vodka
an oomph of Triple Sec
a bit of Sour Apple Schnapps
an oomph of Watermellon Schnapps
a touch of Grenadine Syrup
Blended with Ice, but not too much. Less "milkshake" consistancy and more "drink with crushed ice" consistency.

I'm pretty sure that's all that went into it. It wasn't too bad. The raspberry and orange flavors were very subtle, with most of the flavor being the watermellon and apple. I doubt I'll try it again, as it didn't hold much promise for getting any better, but it was nice enough for the evening.

Just to get your scale right, is the order (least to greatest):
touch -> bit -> oomph -> goodly ammount

If so, please complete the following:
1 bit = X touches
1 oomph = Y bits = Y*X touches
1 goodly ammount = Z oomphs = Y*Z bits = X*Y*Z touches

Thank you.

roughly, yes.

As for ratios, there really aren't any hard-and-fast rules.. In general, though:

1 bit = 1.5~2 touches
1 oomph = 3~4 bits
1 goodly ammount = 4~5 oomphs

it's more of an exponential scale than a linear one. The goodly ammount should make a not inconsiderable change in the overall level of liquid in the blender. The touch might add enough colour to tint the overall mixture, and the oomph is somewhere between the two, but closer to the goodly ammount..
