3 oz. heat-resistant shot glasses for SOUP?

Hi There~~

I want to do a soup course at my Christmas cocktail hour and need 30 small slender shot-type glasses to fill with hot soup. I've looked at a gazillion sites- everything from Crate and Barrel to restaurant supply companies and most are 2 oz.

I was even thinking lab vials in a lab crate right out of a science laboratory.

Is there any company you could recommend? Any ideas?

Holiday Blessings,

  1. At 3 oz, you are probably more likely to find a cocktail or martini glass. Could these work for you?

    1. I saw some 5 oz ones made by Libbey @ Target the other day. Here's a link to them on another site:

        LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVRELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE you guys! I ordered a set of both! The wonders of the internet! :) Many Thanks and all things delish!

      2. How did these work out? I was thinking about the same thing for a holiday cocktail party this year and was doing a similar search. I like the straight sides of the LIbbey set, but wondered if 5 oz size was too big for a "shot" of soup.

          After every member of her party suffered second degree burns to the interior of their mouths from drinking hot soup from a shot glass the OP, ZenFoodist, was sued beyond what her insurance would pay. She no long can afford a computer and will be unable to answer your question.

          We apologize for any inconvenience.

          1. I got a pile of these for my husband's espresso since I have a habit of breaking espresso cups. $2/ea. Plus you get a little saucer.
