the party shot glass
designer's own words:
The Party Shot Glass.
All as one, one for all.
Lots of fun and at the same time it solves many problems.
The concept for The Party Shot Glass is to get people in party´s to know each other and break the ice. Get them all closer and make extra fun around drinking in party´s.
You have invited all of your best friends in a party, but they don´t all know each other.
There are five of you, girls and guys and some of them are very shy.
You bring out the party shot glass and pour into it Icelandic brennivin / or other alcoholic drink to warm up your friends and get them closer together.
You all sit or stand side by side, close together, cheek to cheek and drink together. This really helps the group getting to know each other and a great start for a fun evening. There is often one in the group that doesn't drink his drink and bails from the group shot. If you use the party shot glass, no one can bail from a drink, it´s All as one. The reason for the five glasses is because there are often five in a good friends group, so if you are only four, you can just pour in to four of the glasses and so on.
You can make extra games / fun around it. You can own as many as you like, if you have a big party and want all of your friends, and friends friends to drink together and get closer, you all can drink from The Party Shot Glasses.
Then there is the party shot glass for two, so if you see someone you like, you can invite that person to drink from the glass with you, and be cheek to cheek with someone you don't know or know just a little bit and want to know more. That way, you are saying “I like you”. And it says a lot, if that person wants to drink with you. And definitely helps you to get to know him or her and get close without much effort.
It is made from strong glass, so you get the same feeling as from a typical shot glass, and the fun when you finish your glass, you bang it to the table like you usually do to let every one know you have finished yours, there you do it together All as one.
