The Glencairn glass is the classic whiskey sipping glass but, as I found out recently, it’s also a great glass for apertifs. At the St. Regis in Washington, DC, I was served something called Cocchi Americano in this glass. I’d never heard of it, but there’s a great explanation of this lemony vermouth-like spirit here. Trust me, it’s great, and it’s not expensive. But back to the glass – it’s great, and not expensive, and best yet, fits in those crazy non-adjustable NYC kitchen shelves.
The glass looks like this, costs around $10, and you can buy it here.
Cocchi Americano looks like this, around $18-$20 a bottle, and you can buy it here.
