So many different types of glassware. Do they serve a purpose, or is it just tradition? Does the right glass actually enrich the experience of that drink?
Turns out people aren’t just being pretentious. While some styles may only be designed for their visual appeal, most of the classics are indeed crafted to enhance your drinking experience.
It all comes down to two things: aroma and the temperature of your drink. While aroma doesn’t play a starring role in some spirits, such as vodka, it does when it comes to experiencing gin or whiskey. And while some boozier cocktails play well with ice, others need to stay cold without ice so as not to become watered down.
