Curious about Cocktails? Let’s Start with the Right Glass

To make the perfect cocktail, you need more than a set of alcoholic ingredients and an artisanal shaker. You must know how to mix the flavours in the right proportions, how to combine different varieties of liquors, and how long to wait before you taste your creation. 

You also need the right accessories to help you make the cocktails: specifically, the unbreakable glasses that help bring out specific scents for the best flavour and are protected from accidents. We’ve crafted this guide to help you pick the best glassware for your drinks.

The highball glass should be a tall glass tumbler typically used for on-the-rocks cocktails with a high ratio of non-alcoholic mixer to spirit. The name comes from the classic Highball drink, which consists of just Scotch whisky and soda water. The glass is shaped to keep the drink cold and preserve the carbonation, so they’re best for serving Gin & Tonic, Dark n’ Stormy, Tequila Sunrise, Long Island Iced Tea, Cuba Libre, and Cape Cod.

Martini glasses have a stemmed, tapered shape with a wide rim. It has a “v” shaped bowl design that requires you to sip your drink, making it ideal for serving cocktails like all types of Martinis, Gimlet, Gibson, and Manhattan with these gorgeous Augusta Stemless Martini Glasses. Chilling the glass in the freezer while preparing the drink is highly recommended.

Tall glasses are pretty helpful and are a must-have in any bar. They have a perfect amount of space to fill with ice. This keeps tall cocktails like Tom Collins and Bloody Mary cool for a long time. The more ice you use, the slower the drink will melt away. So you can savour your cocktail for longer.

Even though the trend over here is to have wine, beer, and spirits served in unbreakable glasses with no stems, the stem actually has a purpose. It allows the drinker to hold the glass without warming the drink. This is necessary to keep these drinks cooler for longer.
