Spotlight: Georgian Coupe from AMC's Mad Men

The Georgian line of glassware has a look that's fancy without being over-decorated. The distinctive "disc" stem is easy to hold and is as functional as it is attractive. Perfectly sized, they boast a historic style that works well for classic cocktails served "up" and for champagne. The coupes even recently made an appearance on AMC's Mad Men. The Georgian coupes are available in several sizes, but the best are the 5 ounce or 6 ounce. Summit Sips often has a small stock of both! Click the images to go directly to the store.

Antique Glassware

As many of you know, we have somewhat of an obsession with antique glassware. But, our interest doesn't actually force us to buy every stem that we see. With only a few exceptions, we try to find good values when out on the hunt. We like knowing that we have something unique, but that we didn't have to pay an arm and leg for it. That way we can use them at parties and won't be upset should an accident occur. Some people like matched sets. We understand that, and used to feel that way too, but one of the joys of owning even a single stem of a given style is that it helps to underscore how each cocktail you serve is unique. Rarely do guests all want the same thing, and giving them their selection in a special cocktail glass is another way to enhance the experience
