So I was looking for glassware suitable for cocktails. Funny thing is, I don’t like rocks glasses (so bottom-heavy…it’s a weird, trivial hangup, really it is), and cocktail glasses are a bit too one-purpose. Enter the Leo All-Purpose Glass, which I spotted in a Crate and Barrel catalog.

Why it’s satisfying:

  • it’s truly all-purpose; the silhouette and size aren’t tied exclusively to any one drink type. So it can do water, wine, cocktail, liquor, or juice duty
  • the proportions, that petite stem, the fit in the hand are great
  • there’s a touch of taper to the sides which makes it easy to hold, and nice to sip from

Extra bonus: customer comments on Crate and Barrel’s site mention serving parfaits and desserts in these things. Anything + dessert is good for me. I predict individual trifles in my future…

Found: Crate & Barrel print catalog. Purchased in-store.
