"Hoppin' John Parfaits" -- Cas says: another "take the idea, not necessarily the recipe" recipe. I LOVE SERVING IN SMALL GLASSES. Clear plastic for a cocktail party or buffet work just FINE because they're... well... "clean" looking. "Shooters" allow for two things: EASE of serving and VARIETY of tastes. These are 7oz. glasses; Depending on what you serve, a shot glass works for a "taste" the same way as a tasting spoon display.
