Having the proper drinkware on hand offers convenience, ensures consistent serving sizes, and shows off your own personal style. Use a ceramic coffee mug for casual use at home, or opt for a coffee cup and saucer set when entertaining. Insulated on-the-go cups and mugs are the perfect choice when you want to enjoy a hot beverage on your way to work or on your morning walk.
Highball glasses can serve as your day-to-day beverage glasses as well as an integral part of your barware. Keep a set of short lowball glasses on hand to serve on-the-rocks drinks to guests or the morning juice to your family. Stemmed water glasses will bring a touch of elegance to your next dinner party, and they can double as all-purpose wine glasses if you don't have a dedicated set. When you do purchase wine glasses, choose glasses that will accommodate both red and white wines. Red wine needs to aerate to release its full aroma and flavor, and short wide-mouthed wine glasses will serve the purpose well. White wine glasses are generally taller and have a smaller mouth, while champagne flutes will be even narrow and tapered into a tulip shape to help retain those important bubbles. Choose your drinkware for the purpose it will serve as well as to show off your personality. Coffee mugs in particular are available in a wide range of colors, shapes and whimsical designs, but even the goblets and tumblers you choose will show off your sense of fashion and personality.
