A Home Bar Must-Have
The shot glass is one of the best known glasses in any bar. The size of Shot Glasses available varies greatly but the average shot is 1 1/2 ounces. A "short shot", or "pony shot", is another common size that holds only 1 ounce. Typically a Shot Glass is made of a thick glass, especially at the base. This thick glass is meant to absorb the shock of being slammed on a table or bar, something that often happens after a person consumes its potent contents. Novelty and nostalgic Shot Glasses are collector's items that often display promotions for events, places and company brand names. The more interesting novelty glasses depict cartoons, humorous situations or sayings.
