Complete Your Cocktail Service
What is a “highball” cocktail anyway? The classic highball consists of a base spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Think Gin & Tonic, Mojito, Cuba Libre, Tom Collins, and Seven & Seven.
You really can’t go wrong serving the full range of beverage types in a highball glass – beer, soft drinks, iced tea, water – making this truly one of the most versatile glasses in your cocktail set.
The iconic elegant cocktail with a universally known glass shape – anyone can spot a martini glass when they see it. For your basic martini, the ingredients are easy – gin, vermouth, and an olive – but it’s all about the preparation and style.
Every bartender should know the classics: Manhattan, Gibson, Rob Roy, Vodka Martini, Dirty Martini. How about the trendies? Cosmo, Lemon Drop, French Martini, Brandy Alexander, Nuts & Berries.
A popular and tasty vehicle for tequila, triple sec, and lime – the margarita glass is always a welcome complement to this fun, classic cocktail. The extra wide rim is perfect for salt and a lime garnish. Be sure to check out jumbo-sized margarita glasses for your extra-thirsty customers.
Here’s a bonus idea: Ditch the liquor and serve up shrimp cocktails.
Another versatile style of glassware, a rocks glass is a tumbler shorter in height and in all shapes and styles: heavy bottom glasses, tempered glasses, fluted glasses, and so much more. From martinis, to margaritas, to scotch on the rocks – you can serve up almost anything in a rocks glass.
Old Fashioned Glass
A rocks glass made specifically for Earnest Hemmingway’s favorite cocktail. The Old Fashioned has stood the test of time with it’s sophisticated concoction of sugar, bitters, whiskey, and a twist of citrus rind. It is an art-form to create the perfect Old fashioned – so make sure your bartender has all the right tools for the job.
Goblet & Schooner Glass
Goblet and schooner glasses are notable for their shape: rounded with a short stem. Better known for serving beer, goblets are a fantastic option for your more creative cocktails with ample room for a variety of colors and garnishes.
Looking for a smaller elegant glass to serve after-dinner liqueurs in? That’s what a cordial glass is made for. Cordial glasses are typically smaller than your average glass – usually holding around 45 ml of liqueur – which is closer in serving to a shot glass. What you then have is a sophisticated stemware ideal for dessert.
Shooters & Shot Glass
Time for some fun! Beyond your average shot glass, your more adventurous customers may be looking for something a little more creative – shooters. Your average shooter is an ounce of at least two spirits mixed together to form a colorful and tasty treat. For fun, have your bartender concoct their own signature shooter.
