People ask me all the time the difference between a "Shot" and a "Shooter." Here's the difference: "Shooters" have a mix to them like a Woo Woo or a Lemon Drop. Since they have a mix to them they require a larger glass. "Shots" are 100% alcohol like a B-52 or a shot of Tequila and are served in a shot glass (I prefer pony a glass). Hope this helps a little and remember, when life hands you lemons, reach for the Tequila and salt!

In my 4th published book, The Everything Cocktail Party & Drinks Book, there are two chapters with shots and shooters. They are, "Striped Slurps & Sips", and "Flaming Libations from Hell".
