A margarita is a cocktail that’s synonymous with fun. Sip the zesty tipple and good times are almost certain to ensue, especially if you’re drinking from a classic margarita glass.
Like the cocktail itself—which is comprised of tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and agave—the cup is rather simple, but will bring a smile to your face without fail. Its origins are somewhat of a mystery, but one legend has it that a bartender in Los Angeles started using them after receiving the wrong type of champagne glass.
Shaped like a vintage champagne coupe that’s gone awry, the margarita glass has a wide mouth that cascades to a v-shaped bowl and a delicate stem. They’re are available in a spate of different sizes, shapes and materials, depending on what kind of sipping experience you’re seeking.
