All About the Shot Glass

A shot glass is a type of small bar glassware that is used to serve or measure spirits or liquor (and occasionally wine). Shot glasses can be used by your customers to drink their vodka, whisky, or tequila straight or by your bartenders or barmaids to measure spirits or liquor that is poured into a cocktail.

The term “shot glass,” if the Oxford English Dictionary is to be believed, first appeared in the New York Times during the 1940s. However, several references to shot glasses have actually existed as early as the 1930s. The term, though already used by several people, apparently did not come into common usage until much, much later.

In the 1800s, there have been references describing the serving of a jigger of rum or whisky to workers who were digging canals, but no apparent references to the term “shot glasses.”

Before the Prohibition in the United States in the early to mid 1900s, thin-sided whisky glasses were commonly used. After Prohibition, however, these whisky glasses were promptly replaced by shot glasses with a thick base and thick sides.

So how did the shot glass get its name? It's difficult to pinpoint the exact reason, but a theory exists that perhaps because the word “shot,” also means “dose,” that it may simply be that these small shot glasses hold small amounts or doses of liquor or spirits. However, there are several stories about the origin of the style of the shot glass and its name. Few of them stand up to much scrutiny, however, and these alleged stories either place the origin decades before the term appeared in print, or they describe an item that had nothing to do with drinking spirits or liquor.

Regardless of the actual origin of the name, however, it is clear that shot glasses are here to stay. They are most especially useful in bars, taverns, and pubs or other establishments that serve hard liquor, spirits, or cocktails. A great shot glass set also brings out the style and flair of a bar, pub, tavern, or restaurant.
