Cocktail Glasses: A Design for Every Drink

Cocktails are more prevalent than ever, all of which may be served within a specific type of glass. Check out Groupon’s guide to the stemware of spirits.

Beyond their abilities to shake, stir, and make frothy egg whites sound appetizing, bartenders know exactly which kind of glass is appropriate for any cocktail. Glasses come in all shapes and sizes, each designed to enhance the particular properties of the drink within. Here's a rundown of the variations you'll most likely encounter:

Flute: Tall, slender, curvy, and elegant, the iconic flute makes drinking champagne look classy, but it serves a dual purpose: the thin design helps break up the gas in the drink, showcasing the effervescence as you hold it.

Coupe: Champagne bubbles also thrive within the coupe—a small, wide-mouthed bowl with a thick stem. The design suits small cocktails as well, especially manhattans (served up, of course).

Collins: Tall and narrow, the Collins glass is typically meant for drinks served on ice with a lot of soda, such as a Long Island iced tea or a Coke spiked with Pepsi.

Highball: Smaller than the Collins glass but still tall, the highball is one of the most common cocktail glasses, since its shape suits most simple mixed drinks, from gin and tonics to screwdrivers.

Old Fashioned: Also called a rocks glass, the Old Fashioned is a short and squat tumbler ideal for the drinks that share its namesakes—spirits served over ice or an old fashioned itself.

Martini: Another all-too-familiar sight, the martini glass's shallow, cone-shaped bowl keeps ingredients from separating, which is especially useful for chilled, strained drinks such as martinis and gimlets.

Snifter: Featuring a tall, wide bowl atop a comically short stem, the snifter's design serves two functions: its large volume traps the aroma of the drink—particularly brandy—from escaping, and it forces the drinker to hold it by the bowl instead of the stem, naturally warming the spirit with the heat from their bionic hand.
