GLASS WITH CLASS

TIME TO RE­CY­CLE THE BAD STUFF

Esquire (USA) - - The Secrets To Spring Entertaini­ng -

You’ve made an ice-cold pitcher of mar­ti­nis, stirred the spring punch, and . . . you’re go­ing to serve it in what? One of those wide-brimmed tri­an­gu­lar things that haven’t been in vogue since the de­but of Moon­light­ing? A chipped tum­bler that you’ve been carting around since col­lege? Would you dress for your own party in a burlap sack? No. In the same spirit, a good drink served in an in­fe­rior glass is an in­stant em­bar­rass­ment. In­vest in coupe glasses and Nick & Nora glasses that make your cock­tails eas­ier on the eyes—and the fin­gers. Pour elixirs into Nacht­mann’s stud­ded punk-style tum­blers and high­ball glasses. And when it comes to wine­glasses, make names like Zalto and Riedel your new mantra. Think be­fore you drink. —J.G.
