Though Mad Men has wrapped, the influence of 1950’s and 1960’s cocktail culture still lives-on. Barware is popular. Rocks glasses continue to sell well. And the “Three Martini Lunch” is spoiling for a revival. Which brings us to the next-big-thing: The Cocktail Glass, shown above. Though modest in capacity (by today’s “super sized” standards), this is the classic, Mid-Century mixed drink glass. Everything from Martinis to Manhattans would be served in such a stem. And the modest size is part of the reason anyone came back to work at all after such an ambitious expense account lunch. The set of eight stems, hand-cut with a stylized botanical design, can be seen in-shop ($175). Please come in or call for further information.
More newly-acquired glassware tomorrow.
