Though the Manhattan cocktail was invented in the 1870's (in NYC's Manhattan Club, for Winston Churchill's mother), they are much-associated with the post-war Fifties—a time when small, mixed drinks of many kinds were served in glasses like these. These four crystal glasses have sparking, ridged stems. And the glass rims (and feet) are ringed with platinum—which gives them a crisp finish and actually protects the glass edges from chipping. Perhaps you'll want to make this New Year's Eve an old-fashioned celebration. If so, please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
