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

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.
