Got the drinks? Now all you need is some gorgeous glasses and cocktail making kit to create and serve your signature tipples.
Your essential checklist
Champagne glasses: For a glass of bubbles, nothing beats the elegance of a flute. Coupe styles have a more shallow bowl shape, and are great for cocktails.
Wine glasses: Traditionally these have a long stem (which you hold to stop your hands warming the temperature of the wine).
Gin glass: These are quite similar to wine glasses but have a bigger bowl-like shape - plenty of room for ice, mixers and pretty garnishes.
Hi balls: Great for serving up 'tall' cocktails or mixed drinks with lots of ice.
Tumblers: Ideal if you just want a small mixed drink, or are serving a neat pour of alcohol over ice.
Cocktail glass: Or martini glass, these feature that signature cone shape.
Coffee glasses: A stylish alternative to a cup, you can use these to offer guests an Irish coffee.
Cocktail shaker & accessories: Essential kit for shaken drinks.
