How to Pick the Perfect Glass for Your Cocktail, According to Experts

This post was originally published on this site

When it comes to cocktails, we at Food52 think that the vessel that holds your drink is almost as important as the beverage itself. But with so much terminology and so many options, it can be challenging to find the perfect glass for whatever you’re sipping. So, we talked to two experts (our Cocktail Resident Harper Fendler and Commerce Editor Julia Kramer) to figure out exactly what to look for in a cocktail glass—and which styles are worth keeping on hand.

First off, Harper says it’s helpful to think about cocktail glasses as having two main categories: stemmed (like coupes and Nick & Noras) and stemless (tumblers, rocks glasses, highballs, and Collins glasses). Which type of glass you serve a drink in depends on a variety of factors, ranging from tradition and personal taste to practicality.
