Buying the Right Glass

There are many new types of glasses available in the market for different types of alcohol. The majority of us don't mind using a regular cup to drink coffee or a glass to drink water and juices. However, there are opportunities when entertaining friends to impress upon them the right glass for the right beverage. From champagne/sparkling wine glasses to cognac glasses and water glasses, one is available.

The proper glasses make it easy to drink and enjoy the drink. You should shop in specialty wine stores/wine shops for glasses that will serve you well. It's important to have a choice of several different types.

The most common glasses are water/juice glasses followed by wine glasses. Water glasses are the ones you will put to use mostly. There are also different capacities and styles of water glasses to select from. Stemmed water glasses are the ones to use for special occasions. You should get lead-free crystal glasses for the special occasion and everyday tumbler glasses for water and juice.

When it comes to wine glasses, spirit glasses, and cocktail glasses one should look at the versatility of each glass so you can use the same glass for red and white wines, port and dessert wines, or water and beer. Good wine glasses are generally made of fine lead-free crystal because thicker glass is to the detriment of the wine. Red wine glasses are generally larger in capacity, but you can get a Chianti-type glass that will serve both robust reds and fruitier reds.

The Chianti shape is also appropriate for white wines of all types. Most consumers tend to gravitate towards Bordeaux glasses, which have larger bowl capacities, but these are generally not useful for white wines, because of the colder serving temperature of white wine. Champagne glasses are designed to be tall and thin to help the upward passage of air bubbles to the top of the glass.
