Margarita glasses get their name from the iconic cocktail: the margarita. Originally, margaritas are served in this glass, but the margarita glass has long since transcended its name. This is the cocktail glass of choice for many different types of cocktails. Are you looking for an elegant and stylish way to serve a cocktail, then a margarita glass is perfectly suited. At APS Bar & Glass Supply you will find many different types of margarita glasses. Order them directly in the webshop, or first read more information here.
What are margarita glasses?
One can actually not speak of the margarita glass anymore. There are many different kinds of margarita glasses. That does not mean that there is no "archetype". The classic margarita glass is characterized by the long stem and the glass with the "double bubble". The glass has a characteristic double curve with a wide and flattened top section. This is important for the drinking experience (more on that in a moment), but also for the garnishing possibilities. Of course you will find these classic glasses at APS Bar & Glass Supply. After all, we know our classics. But who is looking for a contemporary variation, can also come to us. We also offer margarita glasses that do not have this characteristic classic silhouette, but still fall into the same category.
For which cocktails?
Which margarita glasses you order, depends partly on the cocktails you serve, but also on your style. After all, no one is forcing you to choose the glasses with traditional design. You may be a purist, but perhaps you are looking for glasses that suit the style of your occasion. To start with the most important question: which cocktails are served in margarita glasses? Of course, the classic margarita is a must. This cocktail is made of tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, sugar syrup and coarse sea salt, with a lime wedge as garnish. If you serve this cocktail, you should of course do so in a margarita glass. But there are even more cocktails that are perfect to be served in a nice margarita glass. The margarita falls namely under the short drinks. Many other short drinks can also be served beautifully in a margarita glass. Think of cocktails like the Rob Roy, Daiquiri, Manhattan or Espresso Martini.
Why specifically margarita glasses?
Many cocktails come in specific glasses. Although margarita glasses are ideal for short drinks, not all short drink cocktails are served in these glasses. For some cocktails, tumblers or old fashioned glasses are more suitable. When do you specifically choose a margarita glass? The secret lies in the wide opening of the glass. It allows the drinker to taste a wide variety of flavours. The classic margarita cocktail is a perfect example. You want the drinker to taste the salt, the lime and the cocktail in every sip. Cocktails that do not have a decorative, but rather a functional garnish therefore lend themselves perfectly to being served in margarita glasses.
