Having your own bar has already become one of the essentials that make a dwelling feel like real home. It is stocked not with drinks, but with memories (past and future). What else makes the habitation cozy? All those little things that reflect your taste and personality.
When hosting a party or inviting that special person to your home for a drink, nothing will help you to make a good impression like a wisely chosen glassware. Of course, the choice depends on the drinks you have inside the bar. Let’s talk about the minimum must-have kit.
If we put aside the classical wine bottles, there are quite a lot of drinks that can help you create delightful cocktails for your guests. The possible basis alcohol can be: liquors, martinis, whiskey, gin, sambuca, tequila or rum. Adding various mixers (tonic, soda, juice,whatever) will help you create special drinks which will need their perfect glassware.
The most widespread and popular type of glass, best suitable for low-ball cocktails typically served on the rocks, or for liquors served neat, are rocks glasses or tumblers. These are also called the old-fashioned glasses and are the must-haves of any home bar. Rocks can have various looks and surfaces: smooth or carved, clear or colored etc. You can find the ones that suit you most in this specially designed Luigi Bormioli collection.
The cocktail glass will also be a great option for any type of light homemade drink. Just mix some rum with pineapple juice and add some ice cubes - you have a really quick, yet indulgent Piña Colada ready.
You may also need some martini glasses (used for martinis, obviously) and collins glasses (for cocktails that are topped with soda, like a Tom Collins).
Tip: To ease the process of cocktails creation, you may find it convenient to mix the ingredients in a separate jar and pour the drinks into individual glasses afterwards. If this is the case, you will find Luigi Bormioli Mixology kit a great option.
