There’s a difference between shooters and shots.
Shots are pours of a straight liquor while shooters are mixed drinks served in a shot glass. While both are fun and social, shooters can rev up a party in a split second. And having some cool shooter glasses that are as unexpected and unique as the concoctions they hold really enhances the experience even more. They are conversation pieces and show stoppers at the home bar.
Below are five of the most popular and fun shooter glasses around. Each has its own style, but all will surprise and generate conversation. They make awesome bar gifts too around the holidays and birthdays.
