Cocktail Glasses

Serve mixed drinks from the appropriate glasses. Old-fashioned or rocks glasses hold 8-12 ounces and are roomy enough for plenty of ice, while V-bowl martini glasses are meant for cocktails served "up." Highball and Collins glasses have a 10- to 16-ounce capacity.

Coffee Cups and Mugs

To keep coffee hot longer, choose a thick cup or mug with a narrow opening. Paper, plastic, and stainless steel can retain flavors and aromas. Glass and ceramic won't do that, but they can break. Standard cups and mugs range from 12 to 20 ounces; other shapes suit the type of coffee, such as latte or demitasse.

Tea Cups

The cup is as important as the leaves in the ritual of drinking tea. Classic footed cups of delicate porcelain or bone china usually come with saucers, while flat-bottom cups need none. A white interior showcases the tea's color. Variations include glass infuser mugs and handle-free cast-iron cups that complement Japanese tea.

Stemware

The shape and size of each type of stemware is designed to present the beverage at its best. Red-wine glasses have a large, wide bowl to capture the wine's aromas. A smaller, narrower glass helps white wine stay cool longer. Sparkling-wine glasses, also known as flutes, are tall and narrow to encourage champagne bubbles to rise. Dessert-wine glasses are small and tapered at the top. The short stem and wide bowl of a brandy snifter helps your palm's heat warm the liquor.

Product Features

Product Features

Over the centuries and across world cultures, drinkware has developed to include specialized containers for each beverage as well as types of that beverage -- think of coffee.

Appearance

You will use drinkware every day; shop for pieces that are attractive as well as functional. Manufacturers introduce new styles, tints, and patterns each season to suit any taste or preference.

Material

In general, cold and hot drinks are served from vessels made of different materials. Glass is most common for cold and iced drinks, but look-alike acrylic is practical for outdoor use. Coffee and tea cups and mugs are usually made from heat-retaining china, stoneware, or other fired-clay products. Quality drinkware of any material has a smooth and consistent finish.

Comfort

Well-made drinkware feels balanced and comfortable in the hand. Choose styles that are easy to grip and drink from. A glass with a heavier base is less prone to tipping over.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Because there are so many choices in drinkware, it's important to think of your lifestyle and entertaining habits when shopping for items that meet your needs.

Size

Look for glasses, cups, and mugs that hold an appropriate volume of the liquid you're serving. For parties, it's wise to use containers that are slightly too small instead of too big.

Style

Drinkware is available to match dinnerware patterns, but for casual meals, it's fine to use complementary glasses and cups. Clear glass and white ceramic go with almost everything; novelty-pattern drinkware shows your personal style but may look dated quickly.

Durability

Choose thicker glass or plastic drinkware for increased durability. Except for fragile, handpainted, or metallic-trim items, your glasses, mugs, and cups should be dishwasher-safe.

Drinkware for Children

Choose a size and shape that provides a safe grip to prevent spills and injury. A child will do better with a small juice glass than a half-full tall glass. Specialty toddler glasses are a safe and practical choice.

Storage

Consider how you'll store delicate glassware to avoid breakage. If storage is limited, look for cups and mugs that stack or nest.

Sets or Singles?

Some people like a matching set of cups for tea parties or after-dinner coffee. Others prefer a varied collection that allows each guest or family member to claim his or her favorite.
