I've found some wonderful effects that use a shot glass. I'm thinking about creating a small routine out of this.

Does anyone know of any more places I may be able to find some "shot glass effects?"

...There's a few coin things in some early Apocolypse's.

I know that there's plenty more.

Eugene Burger does a full shot glass production from a folder paper sack (actually a doggie bag from Biggs' Resturant) that is quite nice.

Also, I have an unpublished coin thru glass that uses a shotglass if you need one...

Brad - Alfonso has a superb shot class effect which he sells:

A genuine empty shot glass INSTANTLY fills with whiskey, which Alfonso then drinks. The glass can be used for any effect prior to and after this.

If you can find any of the Sam Berland lecture notes or booklets Sam had several using a shot glass. If you have trouble locating them contact me. I have the right to the Sam Berland product line and will be happy to supply you with anything.

Abbott's SQUASH is one of the greatest small magic tricks of all time... it is the vanish and reproduction of a shot glass filled with liquid.

I got mine when it was priced at $1.00.

I wore out a couple of them.

You can also use Ron Wilson's Chop Cup (Jennings is the same) that makes excellent use of a shot glass.
