Mixed shots. Weak shots, due to diluting the liquor with other mixers or chasers, thus reducing the amount of actual liquor, and defeating the purpose of doing shots. Therefore.....they're more like miniature cocktails instead of actual shots.
Alex, do you realize the real way to take shots is pure liquor? This cranberry, filling the space of prospective vodka in my shot glass is really turning these into more of micro-tails versus real shots.
