Looking for cocktail glasses to take your homemade cocktails to the next level? There’s something about a pretty glass that makes a drink, whether it’s a champagne cocktail in a coupe, a sleek glass for martinis or whisky in a satisfyingly weighty tumbler. Here are a few of our favourites.
Best cocktail glasses to buy
Nick and Nora-style glasses make for an especially chic martini – just remember to chill the glass first for 20 minutes or so in the freezer for that extra frosty drink – we’ll have ours with gin, dry vermouth and a dash of orange bitters.
This hand-painted, streamlined tumbler is ideal for old fashioned cocktails. A perfect drink for sipping.
Essential kit for G&T drinkers – fill these elegant crystal glasses with ice, your favourite gin, tonic and lots of garnishes. Here’s how to make the perfect gin and tonic.
These fun plastic tumblers can be illuminated with LED lights. Ideal for evenings in the garden, or take them on a camping trip – they’re durable enough to be transported easily.
A classy glass for margarita lovers – we’ve got a classic margarita recipe, plus some fun twists (the watermelon marg is a must make) here.
Reassuringly chunky glasses (with their own individual walnut wood bases) to cradle in your hands, preferably in front of a roaring fire.
These luxe coupe glasses have an Art Deco-style feel to them – try them with our celebratory gin cocktail. Maraschino cherries are mandatory!
A tactile, textured finish on these glasses makes them a stylish choice for long soft drinks or cocktails such as a dark ’n’ stormy.
Wine glasses are great for spritzes and this set is worth investing in as they’re designed to be used for everything from wine and port to champagne (it’s often better to drink the latter from a wine glass as you can better appreciate the aromas).
We love the warm tones of these sleek vessels made from recycled glass – they’d make a pretty display on a kitchen shelf or drinks trolley. Use for drinks such as martinis and cosmopolitans.
