You might have a fully stocked at-home bar of spirits and wines ready to impress your guests with this festive season, but you’re going to let your game down if you’re serving them up in the wrong glass (or, worse, a plastic cup!).
Knowing which liquor glasses to use for which drink elevate you from amateur host to slick at-home bartender. Here, Hanson Fok, Assistant Bar Manager at Madame Ching, teaches us that there is in fact a method to the madness when it comes to serving up drinks correctly – and it’s not all that difficult to master.
‘For martinis, use the martini glass fitted with a long stem with the conical top – you have to respect the classic cocktail! From a design standpoint, this ensures the drinker’s hands don’t touch the drink, so it stays cool for longer. The large surface area also lets the drinker appreciate the smell and flavour of the vermouth,’ says Fok.
