There is a technique and ritual to taking shots: watching the shot poured, being presented with the shot, picking up the full shot glass, gathering your wits (and sometimes courage), and throwing it back. No matter what a college kid tells you, make no mistake -- red plastic cups are not for straight liquor; having appropriate shot glasses are necessary for the best shot drinking experience.
Why Use Shot Glasses and Not Cups?
Using whimsical or funny shot glasses for your drinks is a great way to enhance your drinking experience visually. While they come in a variety of styles and designs, almost every type allows the drinker to see the body and color of their drink. For the home bar, they are necessary glassware. With personalized shot glasses, the home bar owner can proudly display them for guests. As they can be customized, a set can also make a great gift for the home bar owner!
The size of the glass is also a great reason to use them. Using cocktail glasses or plastic party cups can lead to over pouring, thus wasting liquor. Most shot glasses hold 2 ounces of liquid, cutting down on overpour and delivering just the right amount of liquor to the drinker.
Coming in a variety of funny designs, shot glasses are a great way to show your personality to other party-goers and guests. Ranging from laboratory-style to shotgun shell to sports inspired styles, our selection of unique shot glasses will not only deliver a punch, but will also encourage laughs and conversation.
Shot Glasses Make Fun Gifts
A shot glass set makes a great gift for many occasions. For the new homeowners who host social gatherings, a shot glass set are appreciated as a housewarming gift. Have a wedding coming up? Many grooms turn to personalized shot glasses as groomsmen gift ideas to mark the happy day. They also make a great present for a 21st birthday!
