Types of Cocktail Glasses Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 0 Comments
Cheers! It’s that time again, Happy Hour, time to relax and unwind, enjoy a cocktail with your significant other or friends (or if you’re lucky, both). What you drink is a decision you have to make, hopefully an easy one, but what it goes in is also part of the equation. Whether you are at a bar or at your own house, what kind of vessel holds your cocktail?
Cocktail / Martini Glass
In the mood for a Martini, Cosmo, or Brandy Alexander? Then this is the glass for you. The wide, inverted cone bowl is made for drinks shaken or stirred in a shaker first, then poured without ice, or “up,” into the glass. The wide rim lets you smell the delicious aromas as you sip. Yum!
How about a Bloody Mary, Mojito, or Cuba Libre? Then pull out a highball, add ice to the top, and pour in the alcohol and mixer. Don’t forget to garnish with your fruit or vegetable serving!
Is it an Old Fashioned or White Russian kind of night? If so, the rocks glass is calling your name. Also known as a lowball glass, it’s shorter than a highball and perfect for muddling fruit before mixing. It can be also used for a shot of your favorite liquor served “neat” (no ice).
This one is obvious, but we couldn’t leave it out of the Happy Hour lineup. The traditional margarita glass looks like a pinup version of a martini glass—all curves. Salted rim or not, the margarita gets, and deserves, her own unique glassware.
