Essential Glassware Part 2: Specialty Drinkware
Amateur mixologist or cocktail connoisseur, we have you covered with a few of our specialty drinkware favourites.
The Champagne coupe was designed in England in the 17th century specifically to enhance the qualities of Champagne.This glass is typically 4.5 - 5 oz. Like its cocktail glass cousin, the stem protects the contents of the bowl from warm hands, and the wide mouth promotes aromatics.
The internet’s favourite glass of the moment, the square coupe, “is a statement without a clear purpose. It’s a striking visual anomaly in a world of rounded, bowl-like coupes. Which is exactly why it has been popping up on social media, where utility is secondary, and style is everything.”
Squared-off coupes are uniquely urbane in design, but domestic in use and the shape seems particularly well-suited to nonalcoholic drinks, which can lack the sense of ritual and anticipation that comes from, say, stirring a Martini.
"They don’t really make sense out in the world, but their impracticality is less of an issue and more of an asset when enjoying a drink in your living room."
A cylindrical bowl with a flat base has a dramatic, contemporary look that lends a modern edge to the classic coupe. Perched upon a slender stem, the shallow glass serves cocktails or your favorite bubbly with a splash of drama.
Fazeek's 'Wave' coupes are perfect for serving crémant, cocktails or ice cream. Hand-blown from clear borosilicate glass, they have long stems and rippled edges that add the label's characteristic playfulness.
Inspired by an antique glass collection, each glass is hand blown by Polish artisans and brings iridescent color to your table setting.
The preferred champagne vessel of 1920s flappers and Old Hollywood starlets, the coupe glass is an alternative to the flute, as well as a vessel for shaken or stirred cocktails. With a wide brim saucer design, the glass lends undeniable sophistication to each sip enjoyed.

A champion of taco night, dive bars, and even the craft cocktail bar, the Margarita is a classic cocktail in its own category. No matter where you go, the Margarita is a cocktail you can count on.
Whether you prefer your margarita shaken and served on the rocks or blended up and frozen, there’s one important factor that can make or break the entire drinking experience: the glassware you use.
This NUDE Vintage set of glasses is ideal for serving classic short cocktails — from Cosmopolitans to Margaritas to Barbet. Each glass has been crafted from the finest lead-free crystal with a clean delicate bowl, a deep V plunge and a long, slender stem.
The best options for capturing the aroma are the flute- or tulip-shaped glasses, because “the aromatics travel right out of the narrow opening to resonate around your mouth and nose as you take a sip,” says Lauren Paylor O’Brien, who won the title of Netflix Ultimate Drink Master 2022.

Created at the direction of cocktail legend Dale Degroff, the Nick & Nora glass debuted in 1987 in New York City's Rainbow Room, where Degroff launched the cocktail program that in turn launched the classic cocktail renaissance that continues to this day.
Somewhere between a martini glass and a coupe, the Agent Nick and Nora glass, named after the cinematic husband-and-wife detective team, brings back the suave sophistication of 1930s high life. Handcrafted in Poland, the sleek glass also has a practical side, being nearly slosh-proof and space-saving when stored.
