  Shot glass?  Who wants a "shot" glass?  Give me a glass that isn't shot!  Probably the same people eat seitan and sheet cake!
  OED has "shot glass" from 1955, when it was coined by playwright Arthur Miller.

  10 April 1947, NEW YORK TIMES, pg. 27:
  On the ground that it was badly drawn, the Governor vetoed a bill by Assemblyman Wilson C. Van Duzar to require that "jiggers" or "shot glasses" used to measure liquor at bars have a minimum capacity of one fluid ounce or multiples of one-half ounce if in excess of one ounce.
