Shot glass

From Cookipedia


A Jack Daniels shot glass

A shot glass is a small drinking glass designed to hold or measure liquor, which is either drunk straight from the glass ("a shot") or poured into a mixed drink.

“Jigger” and “pony” are earlier names for a container used to measure a standard quantity of liquor.

Shot glasses decorated with a wide variety of humorous pictures, toasts, and advertising, are popular souvenirs and collectibles.

In Italy, shot glasses have been used for over 200 years. They are typically used there for serving grappa. The grappa is sipped from the shot glass — not downed in a single gulp.

Jigger measurement

A jigger, (one shot) is 44.36 millilitres (1.5 fl oz)
