Different Types of Glasses and Their Uses

Did you know that the shape of a glass can affect the flavor of a drink? With wine, it is important for reds to breathe, which is why the glass is wider than a white wine glass. However, sparkling wines are served in a narrow glass, called a flute, to preserve their bubbly essence. No one wants flat champagne.

Cocktail glasses feature a very wide mouth so that your nose can get closer to the liquid and you can smell the subtle essences in the drink. Highball glasses are designed for drinks that require ice. Snifters are used for those beverages that benefit from the heat of your hand warming them just a bit. Brandy and whiskey are among the beverages that become better when used with a snifter.

Having the right glass for the right drink may seem like a luxury to some.
