Great gift for a 21st, 50th or any other birthday or drinking occasion.

Set of 3 shot glasses with hilarious label that looks just like a prescription medication label. On seeing this shot glass, we were curious if alcohol was ever prescribed by a doctor. We'd heard about folks in the 1800s taking "tonics" and "compounds," many of which were mainly alcohol. But did doctors ever prescribe alcohol just on its own? At the very least, the answer is yes during Prohibition. In order to carry a flask like this around legally, you would have needed a "Prescription form for Medicinal Liquor," which came with a tear-off stub, which you theoretically would keep with the alcohol to prove you were allowed to imbibe. This prescription is of questionable provenance, so don't go flashing it around to the cops if they ask you to walk a straight line. Just what the doctor ordered! Shot glasses are ceramic, and hold 60ml.
