Even More Southern Comfort

New Orleans "Southern Comfort" Centennial Cocktail Glasses with 22 Karat Gold Embellishment (LEO Design)

Mixed drinks—cocktails—were popular through the Seventies, at which point wine became more popular, displacing fancy drinks in bars, restaurants and at home.  Thus, until recently, cocktail glasses have been a bit under-utilized on the bar cart.  But Millennial Hipsters have helped to rescue the cocktail—reviving old concoctions and inventing many new potions, as well.

Shown above, a cocktail glass from 1972—created to commemorate the centennial of the invention of Southern Comfort.  New Orleans paddlewheel boats—in turquoise and 22 karat gold—decorate the stemware.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this set of five glasses.
