Editor's Notes

May 08, 2020:

Entertaining at home means having the right glassware for your guests. Making the right choice depends on the kind of drinks you plan on having. Whiskey glasses are perfect for small portions of liquor sipped straight, but are not ideal for champagne, wine, or frozen concoctions. Regular drinking glasses are fine for water, soda, tea, and other daily beverages, but again, they may not be the best choice for adult drinks.

In choosing glasses for your favorite cocktails, your options are numerous. These glasses come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, such as the Yuleer Highball, which is tall, elegant, and holds 10 ounces of liquor or even champagne. The Paksh Novelty Italian Highball holds 13 ounces, and it has a slim design that fits well in your hand.

The JoyJolt Afina is a martini glass without the traditional design - it has no stem. Instead, it has a thick, solid base that is easy to hold. The Double Old Fashioned is another option with a unique design that looks almost like a boulder in your hand. If you need more than one type of tumbler, consider the Godinger Barware set, which comes with 4 different kinds of glasses for different beverages and occasions.
