63. IdeaSpark*: Mini Liquor Shot Bottles November 28, 2006

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Food and Drink, IdeaSpark*.

We all know about those mini-bottles of liquor. Though they can be turned into nice little oil lamps with just string and some oil, they probably get thrown out a lot (or recycled?).

How about making some bottles in the shape of a shot glass? You can use it to shoot the drink first, then you have a free shot glass to keep. Make the removable lid a thick aluminum seal, and make the label also easily removable. A single shot glass (1.5 oz/44 mL) holds a comparable amount of liquor to a mini-bottle (this Absolut Vodka bottle is 50mL).

Read on for another thought and an existing intriguing product…

Another thought: If the shot/bottle was etched or bas-relieved with the brand and designs, they could become collectible.

Existing product: I came across this following interesting idea while researching if my IdeaSpark* existed. The Pocket Shot is a non-breakable alternative to a bottle.

(1) Looks like it exists. Check out the bottom of this webpage: http://www.tequilaminis.com. Oh well. Still should be more commonplace. Thanks to Jutta at http://www.halfbakery.com.

(2) Why don’t they make bigger Pocket Shots? Disposable Flasks: perfect for cheapskates at large venues (concerts, clubs, stadiums, etc).

im interested in collecting full single shot bottles as a matter of fact i have a small collection started i was just wanting to know how can i get a pocket shot and do you have a catologe you can send me in the mail to order single shots and in case you are wandering yes i am over 21

If you are interested in the pocket shot, try following the link provided. You can try to contact the company and ask if they distrubuted some to any local stores near you. But to be clear, they are disposable flimsy plastic (so I don’t know if it will be part of your collection).

If you are referring to shot glasses, your best bet is to follow the links in comment #1. You can also try to contact Jutta, there, and see if s/he has more info.

Good Luck!

are you from Canada? i already have a collection of 89 full bottles. and im sure that many more different ones are out there, West Virginia just has not got any new ones in . i would be happy to compile a list of the ones i do have if you would like to know. also do you have an address for the store in Canada you speak of so i can write them. the ones you speak of sound interesting . and do you collect the full bottles or just buy them to drink ? just curious. and thanks for your input i look forward to hearing from you .

Yes I am in Canada, near the Maine border. The local liquor store will not mail out anything but perhaps we can work out a trade if you have some botttles I do not. I currently have around 200. 99% are full, but some were unique enough that I bought them empty. The same problem here with no new items coming out in the government stores. I keep a post office box in Maine, so we could ship back and forth. contact me at my email with your list, I don’t have all mine on a list yet but I will get on it and email it back to you. .jailed@nbnet.nb.ca

Check out http://www.disposableflasks.com. The site currently has four different designs for a 7.5 fl. oz. disposable/collapsible flask. I received the camo design during Mardi Gras this year. I used it a few times then tossed it. Worked great – it was nice to not have to worry about losing my engraved steel flask.

I’m interested in buying in bulk, the bottles like you get on an airplane. I think they are called shot bottles. I would like them in different Brands, and flavors. If you can advise me where to , or whom to email, wholesale store, I would greatly appreciate it. It’s the holiday season.

Thanking you in advance,

of magical. The version of Windows on my tablet pc is Windows
XP and there is no difference between it and
the PC that I don’t use anymore.
