As promised, dear readers, I am back with part two of Food & Wine’s Cocktails 2014, with more of William Yeoward Crystal’s beautiful, functional barware and stemware containing some delectable cocktails!
Picture 1 is the Davina High Ball (HB) Tumbler holding a Prior’s Fix, which is apparently a nice drink to have the morning after a night of too much drinking. This scotch and soda based drink is just what the doctor ordered!
Below is the Davina HB Tumbler – simply elegant, with panels near the bottom of the glass.
Made with rye whiskey and elderflower liqueur, the Cooper’s Cocktail looks sophisticated in the Eleanor Champagne Coupe, see picture 3.
Picture 4 is the Eleanor Coupe – note the interesting stem and lovely engraving reminiscent of wheat. As with many of our patterns, Eleanor is based on an antique original that hasn’t been introduced in over a century.
Picture 5 is the Bunny Double-Old Fashioned (DOF) Tumbler containing the Grand-Fashioned, made with Grand Marnier and blood orange wedges. Look at that dramatic color!
Also pictured, is the Bunny DOF pictured without a drink. Bunny is one of William Yeoward Crystal’s classic patterns, bringing the grand elegance of the Georgian Era to today’s dining table and home bar.
Last but certainly not least is the vibrant and refreshing vodka-based Hibiscus Punch, which is one of the “Big-Batch Drinks” suitable to make ahead for parties and celebrations. It looks so lovely in our Vita DOF Tumbler – the purple plays with the cutting on the bottom of the glass, making it look like a glamorous jewel.
Below is the Vita DOF – fill it with your favorite colored cocktail to make a “bejeweled” drink of your own!
