Holiday Glassware Guide: What Cocktail Glasses Are Essential to Entertaining During the Holidays

Most of us think of these as martini glasses, but in the official bartending world, they're cocktail glasses. Designed to hold chilled drinks without ice, the distinctive long-stemmed glasses with the cone-shaped bowl range in size from 4 to 10 ounces.

These glasses hold 7 ounces and are dishwasher safe. Try making this Concord Grape Martini recipe in a martini glass.
