The coupe – A cocktail glass for every occasionClive
Cocktails have been making a comeback for a couple of years now, and one of the growing trends accompanying them is having a fancy cocktail glass to enjoy them from.
However, having a full range of different cocktail glasses in your drinks cabinet may not be all that practical, choosing just one type that will do for most cocktails makes better sense. The coupe is a glass that can handle the fanciest of cocktails.
With a distinctly retro feel of a bygone era, the coupe oozes glamour and sophistication. It is a glass that can carry a vodka martini or a gin fizz with equal elegance.
A dinner party with daiquris made from white rum, demerara syrup and lime juice, served in beautiful engraved crystal coupe glasses will impress your guests and get the party off to a great start. Alternatively, the coupe can also hold a dessert cocktail like the Grasshopper, which is a sweet delight of white crème de cacao, crème de menthe and double cream.
On the other hand, an intimate dinner for two is just the time to enjoy a Hanky Panky, made with gin, sweet vermouth and a few dashes of Fernet Branca. After a hard day’s work, indulge yourself with a Last Word, made with equal parts gin, green Chartreuse and Maraschino liqueur. Both of these cocktails will look and taste great in the right cocktail glass.
Here at H Cooper Glass Engravers, we suggest stocking your home bar with some essential ingredients, along with a set of beautiful engraved cocktail glasses like the coupe, so that you can enjoy your favourite cocktails as the fancy takes you.
