cocktail terminology

can anyone tell me what "up" and "sideways" means in terms of bartending? (i ordered a drink the other night and was asked "how do you want that? up? sideways?" i should've asked the difference, but the bartender was walking away and i just sort of had to mouth it...and i had some notion "up" meant cold, but no ice -- made w/ ice, but strained -- but i had no clue what "sideways" meant.)

just curious.

thanks! cj
