Food & Wine’s annual celebration of all things cocktail is once again on newsstands. We are big fans of these fun annual guides – they are full of fun new twists on classic cocktails and the photos are always great to look at! William Yeoward Crystal barware and stemware features prominently in this edition. In fact, there are so many great drinks in our glasses that I’m limiting this post to vodka-based drinks. There will be a Part 2 to follow with more great images. Let’s take a look at some of our glasses filled with delicious-looking libations!
Pictured is a Camilla Highball Tumbler containing a Roof Garden, which features sprigs of mint and thyme. Maybe it’s “thyme” to try one! See the Camilla Highball below, with a pretty floral pattern cut into it.
Also pictured is one of my personal favorites, the Eleanor DOF (double old-fashioned) Tumbler, with an scrumptious-looking strawberry-based drink, the Strawberry Caipiroska. Below you can see the cutting on the great-looking Eleanor DOF.
Below is the Fern Champagne Coupe, holding the Vieux Blanc, a vodka drink based on the classic Vieux Carre cocktail. This is proof positive that coupes are great for cocktails as well as Champagne! Below, see our classic Fern pattern cut into this beautifully shaped coupe.
Come back for more in part 2! Cheers!
