Cocktails are elegant and deserve to be served in a decent glass! There are various shapes of glasses but the following 4 types of glassware can be
used to make almost every cocktail:
1. Martini glass
Also known as the ‘cocktail glass’ and
traditionally a V-shape, this glass should be cooled before use. Since the
resurgence of classic cocktails, a traditional round champagne coupe is also
sometimes used instead of this glass Martini glass content: ca. 200ml.
2. Sling glass
An elegant, long, thin glass which is
often used for beer in Germany and which has become a popular long drink glass
as a result of the emerging punch and Mojito trend. -Sling glass
content: ca. 355ml.
3. Collins or long drink glass
This glass is also known as a highball
glass and can vary in width and height. It is perfect for a traditional Collins
and other long drink cocktails. -The
content is always the same, irrespective of the shape: 350ml.
4. Rocks or short drink glass
A rocks glass is a sturdy, short drink glass, made from thick glass that
can easily and safely be used for cocktails that must be muddled in the glass,
such as the Caipinevra. -Rocks glass content: ca. 266ml.
Glasses for cocktails should be cooled before the drink is poured. The
Martini glass, in particular, must be cold because drinks served in these
glasses are usually served without ice. Using a chilled glass allows the drink
to stay colder and the perfect cocktail taste to be enjoyed for longer.
