For the most part, shot glasses are an American phenomenon. They are primarily used to drink about 1-2 ounces of straight liquor quickly. Although this defines the function of a shot glass, it does not necessarily describe what a shot glass looks like - its form. Most shot glasses hold 1 ounce of strong liquor and are short, stubby, and thick. However, there has been an expansion of the traditional look of shot glasses. There are now slimmer and taller shot glasses that can hold between 2 and 4 ounces, these are called "shooters" and resemble to some extent an aperitif or cordial glass.
