Aren't those super expensive if you compare the per ounce price with big bottles?

I use them for recipes when I need only a few tablespoons of alcohol.

We don't keep alcohol in the house, so no big bottles. But these would be good for the rare times I'm wanting a cocktail but don't want to have to go out to get one.

I don't know if you're from the south jesssa, but down here we call nips airplane bottles. I use them for when I'm bringing liquor to a football or basketball game. Very handy.

I don't mean to sound stupid here, but what is a nip?

Yum, Make homemade vanilla extract and use the empty nip bottles to make stocking stuffers for The Holidays! :)

Also, I wish I could reuse the bottles for something — but I haven't thought of anything brilliant yet. If anyone has ideas, let me know!

I buy nips all the time, especially for drinks that only require a small amount of something. But sometimes you just need to pony up the cash when you find yourself buying certain mignonettes over and over again!

Sometimes you only need a tablespoon or two for a recipe. Why spend $30 on a full-sized bottle?

I'm with the above posters, if it's something new or just need a little bit, I'll buy the nips; otherwise I stick to the full sized version.

If I just want to try something or just need it for a recipe I buy the small bottles.

they're the perfect size for liqueur spiked frosting or cake.

for liquors I utilize frequently or want to have around, I'll buy a big bottle, but nips or even just smaller sizes are good if you're having a small gathering or if you want to try something new
