2020 changed the way we drank—much less going out to bars and much more Instagramming the cocktails we made solo at 5:01pm while wishing we could go outside.
But, it’s not all bad. Having so much of our lives take place online these days gives us all a chance to upgrade the little details of our lives that appear on-camera. For a truly Insta-worthy Martini, here are the glasses that will set it apart.
If you love a cold, extra strong martini, the Cooler than Cool Chilled Martini Glass is for you. After just two hours in the freezer, the proprietary gel within the double-walled BPA-free plastic construction keeps your 9 oz. drink properly frosty for as long as you’re enjoying. A silicone band acts as insulation and makes for comfortable gripping. You can even store these in the fridge until you’re ready — just give them a quick hand wash and dry after using and pop them in the freezer for your next Martini.
One of our favorite vessels for a Martini is actually a coupe glass. This take on the classic coupe glass was designed for the modern bar. They make the perfect catch-all for anyone making classic cocktails and home and they have a unique refraction and brilliance.
Modern glassware silhouettes can be gorgeous, but for us, it wouldn’t feel like a home bar without at least a few classic Martini glasses. For that, you can’t beat the Spiegelau Classic Martini Glass. Each (certified dishwasher safe!) glass holds 5.8 oz and features beautiful etching on the bottom, setting these sturdy, sophisticated glasses ahead of the rest.
If it doesn’t feel like a real Martini unless you’re sipping from glass, the Cooler than Cool Glacier Martini Glass. It features the same proprietary cooling gel technology and trusty silicone band as the rest of our Cooler than Cool line, but is crafted from glass. Beauty, meet function!
For something modern and eye-catching, the lead-free Faceted Martini Glass is a must. The gem-inspired geometric design catches the light while holding 7 oz of your Martini, Manhattan, or whatever else you happen to be imbibing. The footed base gives it a sleek, updated silhouette. Think of it as a light show with your cocktail.
