What is the best glass for entertaining?
When I was a young newlywed, getting ready for my first large party, I happened to read an entertaining book and I learned an invaluable tip about glassware. If you are a real wine connoisseur, of course you want to have the correct wine glass to compliment your wine, however, if you are trying to build up a bar of glassware, you have other things to consider. The book I read recommended the standard 10 ounce white wine glass.
This is a great piece of glassware to build your bar upon. I went to a restaurant supply store and began purchasing these glasses until I had 100 of these. This is the best glass because it is perfectly acceptable to serve so many different kinds of drinks in it. This is a glass in which you can serve white wine, red wine, a soda, a margarita, a bloody mary, or you can even use them for a dessert, such as a scoop of sorbet or fruit with whipped cream.
You can even use these for a breakfast brunch food, yogurt and fruit. There are rare occasions when I have used disposable dishes, but never glassware. Try these glasses as your bar standard.
Do you have a favorite dish or glass you like to use when entertaining?
