Present your cocktails like a professional in cocktail glassware.
No home bar would be complete without a collection of cocktail glassware that
is both durable and fun. For your guests there's always a buzz of anticipation
when you ask, "What will you have to drink?" And as host it's your
job to mix up tasty treats your guests will rave about. The best way to do
that is to serve your creation in beautiful cocktail glassware.
Every gourmet chef knows that presentation makes good food taste even better
and it's the same with mixed drinks. A good drink served in the right cocktail
glassware makes it actually taste better! Inside you'll find all the favourite
cocktail glasses: tom collins glasses, highball and old fashioned glasses,
super strong shooters, and some wild martini glasses that are sure to impress
your guests. Choosing the right cocktail glassware was considered absolutely
essential at one time. Now is a more relaxed age and we are less rigid about
the choice of cocktail glassware used. Below is some of the cocktail glassware
you should consider purchasing.
After all it doesn't do much for the image of the amateur bartender if the
same cocktail glassware is used over and over again! The shot glass is a small
glass used for high alcohol content drinks. The cocktail glass is an elegant
glass used for many cocktails. It has a thick stem to stop your hand from
warming the drinks. The martini glass is probably the most famous of them
all and is used for martinis and margaritas. The champagne flute is excellent
for any drink with bubbles in it. The height of the glass shows off the bubbles
as they rise. The lowball glass or tumbler is used for bloody marys and other
drinks that have a large mixer – alcohol ratio. The highball glass is
often used for fruit punches and Harvey wallbangers. The Paris goblet is the
classic wine glass.
