Alcohol...our venue is being your own alcohol doesn’t matter what kind their only rules are, 1. no one can serve them self, so must have a bartender. No problem the venue will hire them for us. 2. No glass 3. No shots. Now I 100% understand no shots but fiancé wants “Fire and Ice” which is normally served as a fireball and rumplemintz shot...he wants it to be served “on the rocks” so it won’t be served as a shot...I wanted to ask the venue the thought on this but he said if it’s on the rocks it’s not a shot so no reason to ask...but I want to order menu signs...I’m not a big drinker so is serving a drink “on the rocks” make it not a shot? Even without a mixer added?

    To keep your event from being shut down for breaking rules, serve it on the rocks with a mixer or not at all. You would have to discuss that with the bartender.

    At the end of the day a shot is just alcohol being drunk very quickly. Your FHs idea is fine. You could even give it a different name to dissuade people from the association of rapid drinking.

    That’s what I was thinking giving it a different name as well! Thank you!

    It's a well-known trick for weddings that if you want a shot of some sort, you just ask for whatever alcohol on the rocks. Most bartenders will even tell you that at weddings! So you should be okay with the on the rocks drinks.
