How do you want to drink today? On the rocks, with a carbonation or with a mixer like cocktails? As every season has its own prominence, every drink has its own aroma and taste. They have to be served in different glasses to boost their elegance. Here is the list of glass wares used for different kinds of alcoholic beverages.
Martini – Martini comes in a cone shaped glass with a long stem. This cone shape avoids the ingredients to separate, it keeps the ingredients together. It’s ideal for cocktail drinks, which includes martinis, manhattans, metropolitans and gimlets (without ice). It has a large surface to flare up the aroma.
High ball – High ball is a long glass which is well suited for carbonated cocktails. This type of glassware holds the bubbles in the glass (carbonation). Carbonated cocktails should not have high surface area. The higher the surface area the more the carbonation gets out of the drink. As highball type of glassware has small surface, it is ideal for carbonated drinks.
