GLASS WITH CLASS
TIME TO RECYCLE THE BAD STUFF
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.
