Does anyone (else) prefer their margarita in a margarita glass or a short, rocks glass as opposed to a giant water glass - so much so that they request a specific glass or ask about the glass before ordering? For the life me, I can't figure out why anyone currently running a Mexican restaurant would choose to serve a margarita in a water glass over a margarita glass - yet this is how more than half of margaritas are served. And if you ask for it in a rocks glass, most bartenders will look at you like you're crazy. As if to say "you're margarita is gonna be smaller...don't you want it in this giant big-gulp cup?"
At this point you know you're in for a seriously tart, syrupy, juicy glass of sweet and sour mix. So then you have to tell the guy to make it a double in a rocks glass (in order to combat the insane amount of mix or orange juice or whatever else he's going to put in your drink.
Just as bad - the Martini served in those cone-shaped stemless glasses. You'll primarily see this in Asian places. Isn't half the pleasure of drinking a martini - the glass? Would anyone agree that a Martini served in something without a stem is basically a cup of vodka? --- or is it me?
