Drinks go in a glass.

20th October 2015

If you want to serve chips, then a mini bucket keeps them hot, away from any sauces that might make them soggy and looks good.  Lovely items to present canapes on or in, all good.  But most food looks best on white plates and every cold drink, without exception, needs to be in a glass.  Not an old beans can or a jam jar.  A glass.

Get the right glass for the right drink, of course.  Pina colada glass for pina coladas, martini for martinis, margarita for margaritas – all excellent, though a hi-ball is also a good choice.  Champagne in a flute or a coupe, wine in a wine glass.  Nothing needs to be drunk from a tin can which has, for added tragedy, been cleaned up specially.
