Glassware Tips

Colorless Glassware: the Advantage is Clear

Opting for transparent glassware makes it easy to revamp your tabletop with no worries about clashing colors or patterns. Plus, clear glass showcases the color of your beverages, from beautiful Bordeaux to pink cosmos. After all, what’s the point of a tequila sunrise if no one can see it?

Essential Stemware for Occasional Entertaining

Even if you have no intention of hosting a cocktail party, you’ll still want appropriate stemware for special occasions. Champagne flutes are a must for engagement parties and New Year’s celebrations or even for mimosas at the monthly ladies brunch. And it’s a great idea to keep a set of wineglasses on hand since guests often come bearing gift bottles of vino.

Beverage Napkins: Festive and Functional

Add an extra touch of personality to your next party with paper cocktail napkins. You’ll find designs to fit any theme, from whimsical to elegant. And cleanup couldn’t be easier.

Up the Cool Factor with Chilled Glasses

Chilled cocktail glasses not only keep drinks cool longer, they make any gathering feel more sophisticated. Place glasses in the freezer for an hour or in the fridge for a few hours. Remove glasses when ready to serve. In a pinch, you can chill glasses in ice for about half an hour.

No Crying Over Chilled Milk

Nothing goes better with fresh-baked cookies or brownies than a glass of ice-cold milk. But you don’t want to water down milk with ice cubes, so try chilling your glasses instead. Pop them in the freezer for about an hour and remove immediately before serving.

Drinking Glasses: Not Just for Drinks Anymore

Clear drinking glasses are one of the most versatile items in your kitchen. Try using them as bud vases, votive holders or fill with fruit or candy for a unique centerpiece. They’re also great for serving mousse, ice cream or gelatin. You can even use them as cookie cutters or, in a pinch, as a rolling pin.

Wine Glasses

Red and White Wines: Are Different Glasses Really Necessary?

In a pinch, you could sip wine from a jelly jar, but if you want to bring out the best attributes, you’ll need the proper stemware. The deep aromas and rich tannins of red wine benefit from exposure to air, so you’ll want a large bowl with wide lip. White wines are generally fruity and don’t require as much breathing, so a smaller glass is the ideal choice. As an added bonus, small glasses keep wine cool longer.

Wine Glasses: The Choice is Clear

No matter what size or shape wine glass you choose, you’ll want to go with clear glass. Opaque or tinted styles mask the wine’s true color and make it difficult to see how it behaves in the glass when swirled.

Be Prepared to Pop the Cork

Nothing spoils a party mood faster than a bottle of wine without an opener in sight. Even if you’re not a connoisseur, you’ll want to be sure that your guests can get into the bottles they bring. So be sure to keep both a wine and bottle opener on hand. You don’t need to opt for a high-tech contraption, but you’ll at least want a proper corkscrew.

The Home Bar

Base Barware on Your Drink Preferences

When stocking your bar, opt for glasses and tools that will help you make your favorite concoctions. If you like red wine with dinner, get a few extra red wine glasses to allow for the occasional broken bowl or stem. And consider your guests’ tastes, as well. If they tend to choose beer over wine, be prepared with the appropriate glassware.

Essential Tools for Your Home Bar

You can’t make the best mojitos on the block without a muddler or serve a fine Pinot Noir without a decanter to let it breathe. Bar tools and accessories are just as important as the glassware itself. Home bartenders will want to stock their bar with a shaker, strainer, muddler, jigger, bottle opener and ice tongs. Wine lovers will find a decanter, a good corkscrew, bottle stoppers and wine storage racks indispensable.

An Ice Bucket Elevates Your Party’s Cool Factor

An ice bucket with tongs adds a sophisticated touch to any get together. It eliminates countless trips to the freezer and encourages folks not to stick their fingers in the communal ice. You’ll find a variety of styles to fit your taste and budget. Anything beats making do with the commonly used plastic mixing bowl.

How to Store Your Bar Supplies

It’s best to keep all your bar supplies – glasses, tools, and liquor – together in one place. No need to go searching for a stray corkscrew or a missing muddler. Pick a cabinet or closet where they’ll be protected from sunlight and extreme temperatures. And, of course, be sure to stash alcohol in a place children can’t access.

Great Cocktails are Shaken, Not Stirred

Whether you’re serving martinis or Manhattans, you need a good cocktail shaker. You’ll find them in two styles: the popular three-piece, which includes a strainer and jigger lid and the Boston shaker, which features a stainless steel shaker and mixing glass. Professionals prefer the versatility of the Boston shaker, but either style is a welcome addition to your bar.

Do Your Cocktails Measure Up?

To make a balanced, delicious cocktail you have to watch the proportions. That’s why a jigger is as essential to bartending as measuring cups are to baking. The most popular style is a double jigger, which measures one and two ounce shots. But if you’re making pitchers or punch, a traditional glass measuring cup is more efficient.

Caring for Your Glassware

Top Tips for Washing Glassware

Carefully wash glassware with a sponge or soft dishcloth.

Never use abrasive pads or hard-bristled brushes, which can easily cause scratches.

Avoid accidents by holding the bowl rather than the stem when washing.

When scrubbing or drying, never twist the stem and bowl in opposite directions.

Avoid Temperature Extremes

Extreme temperature changes can easily cause glassware and crystal to crack or break. Avoid pouring hot liquids into cold glasses or putting cold glassware into hot water. Also, it’s best not to store glassware in areas that are known for extreme temperatures such as attics and basements.

Storing Glassware: To Flip or Not to Flip?

Chances are, you were taught to store glassware upside down to keep the inside clean. Actually, this isn’t the best idea. The lip is the weakest part of the glass and isn’t engineered to support a glass’s entire weight. Turning glasses on end causes undo stress to the mouth, which leads to cracks and breaks. To keep your glasses in top condition, always store them right side up.
