There are various types of shooters, each with its own name. Some of them have special uses. They can be used for measuring alcoholic drinks or for other purposes. The jigger is one such example.
In its simplest form, a shooter is a small shot glass filled with liquor. It’s usually drunk in a single gulp. Other times, it’s a drink that’s stirred and layered.
Although the history of shots has been debated, some of its theories trace back to the pioneer days of the American West. Others point to the company founded by Friedrich Otto Schott.
In general, a shot is any kind of alcoholic beverage that is served in a smaller vessel than a regular cocktail. Shot glasses are a popular way of serving these mini cocktails.
These small vessels come in many shapes and sizes. In the United States, a typical shot glass holds 1.5 ounces of liquor. However, the exact measurements vary widely by region and country.
Some bars have their own signature drink, which is made with a different number of ingredients or with a different method of preparation. This can be a very useful tool for bar owners.
Another very useful device for bartenders is the jigger. Jiggers measure up to two ounces of liquor. These small vessels are also extremely useful for mixing drinks.
In addition to measuring alcoholic beverages, a shot glass can be used to make a variety of other drinks, like cocktails, mocktails, and even food presentations.
