Five Go-to Drinking Glasses for Your Bar

0 Comments 16 July 2014

Every drink has a type of glassware that practically begs to go with it. The perfect glass shape can even improve the flavor of a cocktail! Who knew? Well, now we do—and we’ve narrowed down our go-to drink receptacles to the five easy-to-find types below. With these on your shelf, you can properly serve up any concoction that you can come up with (and they look pretty good, too) We’re getting thirsty just looking at this.

a. Collins
The Collins is a classic glass that takes its name from the Tom Collins cocktail and is designed for carbonated drinks. The tall slim shape helps effervescent cocktail stay that way long after they’re poured.
Size: 10–14 ounces

b. Pint
The pint glass is meant for larger mixed drinks that generally have a lower alcohol content, like beer cocktails (unless you’re really getting after it). A 16-ounce Mason jar is a great substitute for traditional pint glass.
Size: 16 ounces

c. Coupe
The coupe became popular in the 1930’s as a Champagne glass, but today it’s making a well-deserved comeback in the cocktail world. Smaller than most other glasses, this one’s perfect for small doses of potent cocktails served “up” (without ice).
Size: 4-6 ounces

d. Rocks
The rocks glass might be the most versatile glass out there. It’s capable of handling just about any cocktail, and drinks served over ice (“on the rocks”) usually find their way into one of these. If you only buy one type of cocktail glass, make it this one.
Size: 6-10 ounces

e. Tumbler
A tumbler is a sturdy, flat-bottomed glass with a slightly wider mouth than a rocks glass. Use tumblers when you’re cocktail-crafting on the go, given their easy pour-ability and the way they can take a licking in transit.
Size: 6-10 ounces
