How to choose the right cocktail glass.
When it comes to cocktails, the glass matters more than you think. The right glass maximizes a cocktail’s taste, smell and appearance. There are three main rules to keep in mind when choosing a glass.
A stemmed glass is for shaken or stirred cocktails, served without ice.
An old-fashioned glass is for cocktails built directly in the glass, sometimes served with ice.
A highball glass is for cold, refreshing cocktails, usually served with lots of ice.
