simple, elegant, and the right size
on June 14, 2012
This old-fashioned glass is the right size to hold a standard 2-1/2-oz cocktail. Most other glasses I found on Amazon and in stores were huge "Double Old Fashioned" glasses, which are fine for juice or water, but too large to hold a single cocktail without a boat-load of ice.
It is also the perfect size to hold a Tovolo 2" spherical ice cube, which makes an excellent combination for sipping whiskey. With one of these spherical ice cubes, the glass can hold 2 to 2-1/2 ounces of liquid without coming too close to the top. (As an aside, this has an entertaining effect in itself; when I made margaritas for myself and a friend, the spheres of ice kept rolling in the liquid like ball bearings.)
The glasses are plain in design. The Amazon image seems to show a circular design ringing the glasses, but this does not appear at all in normal lighting. The wall of the glass thickens toward the bottom.
None of the glasses I received had flaws.
