Beautiful drinking glasses bring out the best in every drink and make every serving more elegant. At Nordiska Galleriet you will find various drinking glasses from popular brands such as Orrefors, Georg Jensen and Kosta Boda.
WHICH GLASSES GO WITH WHICH DRINKS?
Glasses with different shapes are designed to enhance and bring out the specific flavour and aroma of each drink. The shape of the cup and the opening is often the most decisive factor in the way a drink is perceived. So which glasses are suitable for gin and tonic, for example, and which drinking glasses are suitable for mojito, are different.
The classic cocktail glass is straight and cone-shaped and holds 6-30 cl. The glass is shaped like an upside-down cone. Traditional cocktails often have an intriguing aroma and the larger opening allows this to come through. These glasses are suitable for cocktails served with or without ice and are perfect for popular cocktails such as Dry Martini and Cosmopolitan. These glasses are also sometimes called martini glasses because martinis are often served in these glasses.
Highball glasses are tall, have a straight shape and hold approximately 24-45 cl. The larger volume makes it possible to mix drinks that contain a lot of mixers, juice or soft drinks. Highball glasses are suitable for serving long drinks such as gin and tonic, mojito and Bloody Mary.
Lowball glasses are not as tall as highball glasses but shorter and wider and hold about 12-30 cl. The glass has straight sides without a base and often has a thick bottom. Lowball glasses are perfect for simple drinks like Old Fashioned or Negroni, or for serving straight whisky.
