Editor's Notes

May 15, 2020:

When choosing the best products for your home, most people would agree that glass is superior to plastic for serving guests beverages, but because the Margarita is best enjoyed on a hot summer day, (and they go down easily), we included several guest-worthy plastic "glasses" as part of the list.

While the Camco Travel is very basic, it looks and feels so much like real glass that your guests might not even notice. Plus there are eight in a pack, so it's a great party glass. We added the more refined-looking Kate Spade Party Kit as it is also unbreakable but wouldn't be out of place at a special gathering of friends out on the deck.

The Host Freeze Cooling remains a top plastic choice for keeping those frozen and icy drinks the right temperature on a hot summer day, but we also added the True North Insulated. This unique stainless steel choice is a bit like a thermos designed especially for margaritas, (you can even salt it before putting the lid on) It's more of a personal luxury, as it's a bit expensive for one. but it's a great gift for anyone who's signature drink at a summer party is a margarita.

In addition to the typical shallow bowl shape, the Dos Sueños Chabela represents another classic Mexican glass style that is used for a variety of food and drink. It's excellent for frozen margaritas that contain a lot of ice, as its significantly thicker glass will keep your drink cold longer than most glass. It's perfect for fans of the jumbo-sized margaritas you get in restaurants.

Special Honors

Purismo Bar For some, enjoying a margarita isn't just a party activity, but a regular part of the at-home happy hour. The Purismo takes on the curvy shape of the typical margarita glass a high quality crystal. Despite their elegance, this glass holds 11.5 ounces so you won't need to skimp on the ice.

Elegance Optic Belle Coupe While "margarita glass" isn't part of the lexicon of historic brands like Waterford, the typical margarita glass is really just a hybrid of a champagne coupe and a martini glass. When you're breaking out the anejo tequila and hand squeezing the limes, serve it in some special crystal like the Elegance Optic, or any martini glass will do.
