This 3 ounce cup is extremely versatile. Use it to hold votive candles to create a romantic atmosphere in your dining room. You can also use it as a jigger for measuring three ounces of liquor or liqueur. It fits one full-size ice cube very nicely. Of course, it can also be a shot glass, and has a heavy bottom so that it is unlikely to break when your guests pound it onto the counter. It can also be used for serving small glasses of fresh-squeezed juices like grapefruit juice, cranberry juice or orange juice.
