Apart from the martini glass, several other types of cocktail glasses are commonly used in bars and restaurants. Here are some of the most common cocktail glasses:
Highball Glass/Collins Glass: A tall, cylindrical glass typically used for highball cocktails like the Mojito, Gin and Tonic, or Bloody Mary. It is also suitable for serving non-alcoholic mixed drinks.
Old Fashioned Glass: Also known as a rocks glass or lowball glass, it is a short, wide tumbler used for serving spirits on the rocks or cocktails like the Old Fashioned and Whiskey Sour.
Champagne Flute: A long, narrow glass with a stem, designed for serving champagne and sparkling wine. It helps retain the carbonation and showcases the bubbles.
Coupe Glass: Similar to a martini glass, but with a shallower, rounded bowl. It is commonly used for serving classic cocktails like the Manhattan, Daiquiri, or Champagne cocktails.
Margarita Glass: A wide, inverted cone-shaped glass with a stem. It is specifically designed for serving Margaritas and other tequila-based cocktails.
Hurricane Glass: A tall, curvaceous glass with a stem, used for tropical and exotic cocktails like the Hurricane, Piña Colada, or Blue Hawaiian. Its shape resembles a hurricane lamp.
Shot Glass: A small, thick-walled glass used for serving straight shots of liquor or as a vessel for layered shooter drinks.
