"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." - Henny Youngman.
Less likely to appear on the menus of more exclusive Bars, Shooters can often be as complex, if not more so than a large percentage of today's available Cocktails. However, due to the current trend of knocking back Shooters like most people would a shot of Tequila or Vodka, they have generally become to be seen as nothing more than a quick way of getting merry.
While they can vary in liquid content from 1 to 4 measures of any alcoholic beverage including: Spirits, Liqueurs, Beer, Wine, Champagne or mixer, most Shooters will be served in a Tall Shot Glass, holding 2 measures.
