These days, we could all use a drink. Whether it’s the perfect Vesper or a well-made Paloma, if you’ve got the right ingredients, tools and top-shelf liquor, then you can mix up virtually anything. Of course, you’ll need some glassware on deck too—preferably some that’s both durable and design-forward. Different cocktails will require different varieties, naturally: A highball works well for a mint julep, and a martini glass is great for, well, martinis. No matter what your preference, it never hurts to have a wide range of glasses at home for guests and friends to choose from. Here, a few of our tops—from classic designs to less traditional, more out-of-the-box shapes.
