Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow Snowflake Bar-ware
Thankfully then I have three sets of cocktail glasses! My favorite are the etched deco glasses, but I have no idea who made them or when but they are awesome. Another set I use as cocktail glasses is the Libbey Silver Leaf Sherbert glasses. They hold larger 4 oz cocktails and champagne as well, and they have a nifty pitcher that matches! I also lucked out and found a set to match the snowflake barware which I use most often.
The thing I love about vintage cocktail glasses is they are the correct size! 3oz! Unlike in today's world of 5oz to 6oz cocktails, back then they drank in sensible portions. Granted it was usually pure alcohol in their concoctions so it's probably better that it was only 3 oz! But the idea was to drink the drink fast while the cocktail was still ice cold. I think I'll be using these a lot to get through the move!
