Novelty Shot Glasses
What do you need to kick off a party? What helps you celebrate a success? What’s the humble hero of a toast? Shot glasses. The humble shot glass is like a best-man or maid of honour on a wedding day; they’re there for all the important moments, they are a critical part of the ceremony, and they’re often not given the attention they deserve. Again, they’re humble heroes. So we’re here to celebrate the thing that helps us celebrate—the shot glass.
What Is A Shot Glass?
It’s a small glass that’s used for drinking. You can either hold it and drink all of the liquor straight from it in one go, or you can use it as a measuring device for a cocktail.
How Big Is A Shot Glass?
Here is Australia, a shot glass is 30ml. That makes a ‘double’ 60ml. Since a typical spirit has 40% alcohol, one shot will be equivalent to one standard drink. That’s Australia, but shots and shot glasses in other countries are often a different size.
The Origin Of The Shot Glass
Have you ever wondered, where do shot glasses come from? As it happens, the truth lies somewhere within the fiction. There’s a few different stories on the origin of the shot glass, so let’s get started. Firstly, if you have a ‘shot glass’ you must have first had a ‘shot’. So let’s look at where the term ‘shot’ came from. One story is that it comes from drinking strong whiskey—when you finish the drink you’d slam the glass on the bar and it’d sound like a shot. Another story is that in old Western Saloons you would trade a cartridge for a drink—a shot for a shot. And still another version, the glass was named after Friedrich Otto Schott. And then we must ask, why was the shot glass invented? The most logical reason was to prevent bartenders from over pouring. So that’s the origin story of our humble hero the shot glass. From Western Saloons to college parties, shot glasses have come a long way.
