Here are three styles to own, plus one to splurge on.
The coupe has replaced the martini glass as the carrier choice for stirred drinks. It’s also popular for champagne and prosecco. Our favorite is the Luminarc Barcraft Coupe, inexpensive but elegant enough for even royal affairs.

The flat, heavy base of rocks or old-fashioned glasses is designed for drinking spirits neat or with a big chunk of ice. The Le’raze Double crystal version is classy without being overly pretty; it even lends itself to muddling if you’re making a cocktail.

The collins is your go-to glassware for highballs, swizzles, and all variety of tall mixed drinks. Aim for narrower versions around 12 ounces, like Cocktail Kingdom’s Buswell Collins glass, which closely matches the proportions of most cocktail recipes.

Decanters were once used to carry whiskey home from a distillery. Today they’re mostly decorative, but a model like Simon Pearce’s Woodstock Decanter lets you take in a bourbon’s hue in all its glory.
