Cocktail glasses come in all shapes and sizes, each adding its own distinct aesthetic element to the drink inside. From classic cocktail glasses to modern and fun interpretations, having a selection in your bar to serve different drinks is a must for any modern bar. From deep hurricane glasses to the contemporary mason jar approach, cocktail glasses have a long history of evolution – just like the drinks themselves. In fact, new cocktails and ways of drinking them are being created every day.
Cocktails came into their own during the prohibition era in the US in the 1920s. These fun and glamorous drinks were created in speakeasies, away from the eyes of the law. With exotic names, colours and ingredients, they soon became a staple of almost every bar around the world, with many becoming household names. The archetypal martini glass, with its angled sides and broad brim, is an iconic design and one still much used today.
Margarita glasses look similar but have a ridged lip halfway up. Hurricane glasses are deep and indented, allowing the various flavours and ingredients to swirl and mix. The mason jar is an old design repurposed for modern use, with trendy and hip bars serving up old-fashioned classics and modern interpretations in these specially designed jam jar like glasses with handles.
As well as cocktail glasses, there are various other vessels you can use to serve cocktails, from metal and copper julep mugs to ceramic tumblers. This is your chance to get a bit experimental and try out a few new ways of serving your drinks. Plus, you’ll need a range of other accessories such as cocktail mixers, stirrers, pourers and more in order to serve up the finest quality drinks.
