The Nonic

The Nonic pint glass is a variation on the conical designed beer glass, where the glass bulges out a couple of inches from the top; this is partly for improved grip, partly to prevent the glasses from sticking together when stacked, and partly to give strength and stop the rim from becoming chipped or “nicked”. The term “Nonic” derives from “no nick” In the U.K. by law draught beer must be sold in Imperial measure (e.g. pint = 568 ml) Despite this emphasis on accurately measured glasses, there is a practice of defining a pint of beer and lager as only 95 per cent liquid. It is common for drinkers to be served less than a […]

The Tulip

There exist two types of Tulip beer glasses. The traditional stemmed Tulip beer glass is obviously Tulip-shaped, wherein the top of the glass pushes out a bit to form a lip in order to capture the head and the body is bulbous. Scotch Ales are often served in a “thistle glass,” which is a modified Tulip glass that resembles Scotland’s national flower. The Benefits of this glass is that it captures and enhances volatiles, while it induces and supports large foamy heads. The British style Tulip glass or simply a Tulip pint glass is the glass most bars will serve your Guinness in. It’s a rounder, flared pint glass that looks like […]

The Shooter

A shooter is a neologism for an alcoholic mixed drink that contains one ounce (33 ml) of two or more spirits. Some shooters also have a non-alcoholic ingredient. They are generally drunk quickly, rather than being sipped. Shooters can be shaken, stirred, blended, layered, or simply poured. They are most commonly served at bars, and some bartenders have their own “signature” shooter. The ingredients of shooters vary from bartender to bartender and from region to region. Two shooters can have the same name but different ingredients, resulting in two very different tastes. Shot glasses or sherry glasses are often used but there are also special made shooter glasses available that […]

The Shot

Shot glasses are small glasses designed to hold or measure spirits or liquor, which is either drunk straight from the glass (“a shot”) or poured into a cocktail. The Oxford English Dictionary’s first citation for the term “shot glass” is in The New York Times during the 1940s, but several examples exist from the 1930s However, although it was used by some, the term apparently did not come into common usage until much later. Many references from the 1800s describe giving a jigger of whiskey or rum to workers who were digging canals. Most shot glasses are found in the United States, but shot glasses from before the 1940s are […]

The Sherry

The sherry glass from Glass4ever can be used for serving aromatic alcoholic beverages, such as sherry, port, aperitifs, and liqueurs, and layered shooters. Did you know that sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. Sherry is produced in a variety of dry styles made primarily from the Palomino grape, ranging from light versions similar to white table wines, such as Manzanilla and Fino, to darker and heavier versions that have been allowed to oxidise as they age in barrel, such as Amontillado and Oloroso. Sweet dessert wines are also made, from Pedro Ximenez or […]

The Kölner Stange

blog-thumbnail

The term Kölsch was first officially used in 1918 to describe the beer that had been brewed by the Sünner brewery since 1906. It was developed from the similar but cloudier variant Wiess (white in the Kölsch dialect). It never became particularly popular in the first half of the twentieth century, when bottom-fermented beers prevailed as in the rest of Germany. Kölsch is usually served about 10°C/50°F in long, thin, cylindrical 0.2 litre glasses. This glass is known as a Stange (pole), but is sometimes also derisively called a Reagenzglas (test tube), or Fingerhut (thimble) because they are a lot smaller than the beer glasses used in most of the rest of Germany. Recently though, many bars (especially outside central Cologne) have moved to […]

The Hurricane

The Hurricane glass is a glass tumbler which typically will contain 20 fluid ounces (600 ml). It is used to serve mixed drinks, particularly the Hurricane from which it is named originating at Pat O’Brien’s Bar in New Orleans. The bar allegedly started as a speakeasy called Mr. O’Brien’s Club Tipperary and the password was “storm’s brewin’”. In the 1940s, he needed to create a new drink to help him get rid of all of the less popular rum that local distributors forced him to buy before he could get a few cases of more popular liquors such as scotch and whiskey. He poured the concoction into hurricane lamp–shaped glasses and gave it […]

The Margarita

The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the glass’ rim. It is the most common tequila-based cocktail in the United States. The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up). The margarita dates to at least 1924 and was originally tequila and lime juice, it was Cointreau’s introduction to the United States in 1962, in collaboration with Jose Cuervo’s advertising campaign that gave us the margarita we know today. Another explanation, however, is that the Margarita is merely a popular American drink, the Daisy, remade with […]
