(n.) A diminutive mixed drink comprised of one to two ounces of liquid generally served in a shot or pony glass, this wide-ranging category of cocktails invented in the late-20th century are usually consumed quickly and en masse amongst groups of people. The names tend to reference either artillery or war terms (B-52, bomb, Kamikaze) or soft-core naughtiness (Sex On The Beach, Slippery Nipple).
