Evaluation of some shapes of the most used glasses.


Among the various equipment, the various types of glasses are very important for different reasons. All beverages normally require their categories of glasses to be served, and if the container used is not appropriate with the beverage served, the customer's expectations are not met.
A Martini cocktail served in a low tumbler will almost certainly not even be drunk by the customer who has realized that he is not dealing with a professional. Let's start step by step. First of all we will always check the degree of cleanliness of the glass, no marked fingerprints (the CSI of Las Vegas would go to the wedding), absolutely no lipstick residue around the edges which, among other things, is very difficult to remove. After that we will take care of being able to serve it at room temperature instead of just out of the dishwasher as the sudden change in temperature could cause the glass to break.For certain types of drinks it would be nice to have fresh glasses available but difficult, with the new space requirements, it will be possible to occupy a refrigerator for this use.


Let's now see the different types.


As you can see the first on the right is a classic red wine glass

one for white wines and on the left a large glass for "coladas" and long drinks. The latter, given the capacity, also lends itself to important decorations.
As you can see, the photos I took in my cocktail-bar restaurant are not technically valid but are simply "sincere".
In the following photo you can see on the right two different sizes of glasses

for beer or long drinks, foto bicchieri highball e tumbler altihighball, fruit mixes etc.
On the left, two different sizes of the Tumbler alto type (also called Delmonico from the name of the famous New York club that launched the fashion) suitable for Collins, Fizz, Coolers and the classic rum-cola, gin & tonic etc.
You will like some of these glasses more than others and if you have the opportunity, get the ones you prefer; during the service you will feel at ease and the customer will subconsciously and positively undergo your being satisfied with the good service.

Now in the photo below on the right you can see four different low Tumblers also called Old fashioned, suitable for straight spirits or with ice, quite alcoholic cocktails such as Negroni or Old fashiond indeed.

Also suitable for low alcoholic and informal aperitifs such as Spritz or Americano. Very suitable for serving a vermouth with ice or one of the various bottle aperitifs such as Campari-soda, Sanbitter or the historic Crodino.


Here on the left in different shapes and capacities the small glasses called chupito here in Spain (where I live), to serve mini quantities of smooth spirits.

Below is the photo of three classic glasses that cannot be missing in a bar.The first from the right is a tastevin that is used for tasting wines, liqueurs and spirits.They are also excellent for sipping whiskey or aged rum.foto bicchieri irish coffee, coppetta cocktail classica e bicchiere degustazione

The central is a must for a perfect Irish coffee and on the left the inevitable double cocktail glass for all the classics such as Manhattan, Rob roy, White lady etc.




Similar but smaller is the Martini glass for the famous onefoto bicchiere coppetta martini e statuetta ironica che rappresenta un barman
homonymous blend and for others with a high alcohol content.


In conclusion you can see the flute, the first on the left, for the champagne, classic method
Italian and sparkling wines in general.foto bicchieri flute  per lo spumante e sombrero per i cocktail margarita
To the right of the flute we find the cup called
commonly sombrero, which lends itself very well to frozen blends such as Margarita or Daiquiri.
Below I have inserted a video with a rundown of the glasses seen above.

If the video can clarify any doubts, offer me an aperitif, I would be grateful  !!!
