Shot Glass

A shot glass is a small glass designed to hold or measure spirits or liquor, which is either drunk straight from the glass ("a shot") or poured into a cocktail. A "shot" of liquor is not the same as a "shooter."

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

Famous quotes containing the words glass and/or shot:

    I must sojourn once to the ballot-box before I die. I hear the ballot-box is a beautiful glass globe, so you can see all the votes as they go in. Now, the first time I vote I’ll see if the woman’s vote looks any different from the rest—if it makes any stir or commotion. If it don’t inside, it need not outside.
    Sojourner Truth (c. 1797–1883)

    But the dirty little coward that shot Mister Howard,
    He laid poor Jesse in his grave.
    Unknown. Jesse James (l. Chorus)
