cocktails
When we think of cocktails with think of tumblers, and that’s why we selected a fun assortment of tumblers that can add a little something special to each drink you mix up. Remember color is a great way to add a little playful appeal to each of your drinks. Similarly, tumblers with a less traditional shape can add a chic, cosmopolitan feel to each sip. But, keep in mind just because you are serving up a mixed drink doesn’t mean you have to stick with a tumbler. Mix up a mojito and serve it up in a bistro-style wine goblet for an even more stylish effect.

champagne
Everyone needs an arsenal of champagne flutes during the holidays season. This cause for celebration calls for a variety of toasting flutes. Consider ringing in the Near Year with bolder colors like black. Can anyone say black and white themed New Years Party? Flutes are wonderful for champagnes because of their naturally built in technology that allows champagne bubbles to flow more freely upwards, but saucers are a fun way to serve up champagne as well. Not only were they Marie Antoinette’s way to drink champagne, but they can also be a great way to serve up champagne cocktails or even desserts. For a more traditional look, also consider some hand decorated flutes or clear glass crystal champagne flutes which are fantastic for serving up champagne all year round.
