So, without further ado, here are 31 cool shot glasses that we’re sure you’ll have as much as we did with them. If you can remember that fun afterward that is. Ready to get started? One, two, three…SHOT!

Coming complete with 16 shot glasses that are placed around the outside of a roulette wheel, players simply choose their glass (glasses for the more adventurous) and await the result of the spin. There are two numbers on each glass and each spin will determine which glass has to be drunk by its owner.

Another great little drinking game set that is also fantastic value is that of this checkers glass game set. This is a full-size glass checkers board of very high quality while you also get 13 clear shot glasses and 13 frosted shot glasses so that you can obviously use them as for each of the pieces on the board.

The idea, if you haven’t figured it out already, is that when you take one of your opponent’s checker pieces either you or the opponent (however you have decided) has to drink those pieces. All in all, this is great fun but we can promise that you’ll be drunk before the game finishes in most cases.

If you’re one of those that struggles to take a shot without first needing a chaser on-hand, this is the slot glass that you should be buying. Why? Well, it’s doubled layered and thus allows you to drink both your shot and chaser in one go from the very same glass. No more messing with second glasses and you’ll also be able to enjoy the instant coolness of your chaser.

How it works is a little illogical to us as it defies logic but you basically pour your chaser in first, then your shot and somehow the two will not mix. This is a set of four as well so grab some friends and have a bit of fun in your downtime.

Why not try something a little different the next time you’re on the market for some new cute shot glasses? Do away with the glass, plastic, and metal and go for copper instead. Sure, copper takes a little more work to maintain but it sure looks great when enjoying a few shots with friends.

There are some rather obvious benefits to ditching the glass and going for metal shot glasses. For one, they are pretty much unbreakable despite the best efforts of your friends and for two, cleaning them is easier as they are made from stainless steel and are thus dishwasher safe.

We’re sure you knew all of that though but there’s another reason why we particularly like this set of shot glasses. They stack within each other and can be packed into a leather carrying case. That means you can just put them in your pocket or throw them in your men’s sling bag and make your way to where the party is at!

Sobering Up

So, that concludes our long and extensive list of the coolest shot glasses around right now and we’re sure that you’ll have spotted at least a few of them that’ll make a great addition to your next party.

Taking shots is a surefire way to bring life to a party quickly but it’s also a surefire way to make the night ended a little quicker for many. That’s why we strongly recommend that you drink responsibly…wait, what are we saying? You’re all adults and old enough to make your own decisions, go and get wasted if that’s what you want to do. Perhaps even spice things up by throwing in an adult board game into the mix at your party.

Let us warn you though, it might be a good idea to invest in one of the best coffee machines before your next night of fun, simply because you’re going to need it the morning either!
