Shot glasses Information

A shot glass is a small glass designed to hold or measure liquor, to be either poured into a mixed drink or drunk straight from the glass .

Jigger or pony is an earlier name for a container used to measure or drink a standard quantity of liquor. A small glass holding a shot of liquor is called a whiskey. American distilleries distributed thin whiskey glasses bearing etched advertising between the late 19th century and the beginning of Prohibition. Shot glasses decorated with a wide variety of advertising, humorous pictures, and toasts are popular souvenirs and collectibles. Care must be taken when drinking from decorative shot glasses, as some decorations contain lead. Pre-prohibition whiskey glasses are also highly collectible.

In Italy, the shot glass has been used for over 200 years, very popular in taverns for tasting grappa. Grappa is sipped from the shot glass, not downed in one gulp.
