Used for martinis, cosmopolitans, and other "straight up" cocktails, or cocktails without ice, this glass (also called a cocktail glass) is the picture of sophistication. The inverted cone bowl allows plenty of room for garnishes and the long stem makes it easy to hold between the fingers. Common sizes are six to 12 ounces.
Show your bartending know-how by chilling the martini glass before using it. To chill quickly, add a scoop of ice and a splash of water and let the glass sit while you mix the drink. Dump out the ice and water right before you strain the drink into the glass.
