Just starting out a cocktail cabinet
I'm just putting together a cocktail cabinet: http://www.chow.com/food-news/53883/key-to-the-liquor-cabinet/2/
So far I have most of the stuff, except bourbon (I'm going for Woodford reserve), Triplesec and a few other errata.
Trouble I'm having is the whiskey glasses (or tumblers) that I want to use for short drinks like G&T's rum and coke or whatever. I have a very definite idea of what I want, but I can't find them in the UK.
Hmmm.. Thinking about using science beakers...
^ That's what I'm after (without the branding - something quite square based, and quite round rimmed, but not 100% of either. Do these have a specific name?
Orrefors made a fantastic square based glass with a good weight to it, but I believe it has been discontinued. It is quite pricy on eBay (£25.92/glass). It's called Orrefors Odyssey. My parents have this as their barware and I love it.
