Setting the Table: Glassware
Whatever your preference is for an evening cocktail, be sure to serve it up in style. These
cocktail glasses directly from New York City will help you to do just that!
Private Lives Martini Glass
Private Lives Martini Glass — Celebrated playwright Noel Coward
would never have been caught dead without a full Martini glass and a tailor-made tuxedo. Maybe that's
why he always ended up at "marvelous parties."
Start with these elegant, swellegant 6-ounce Martini glasses (props

turn the cocktail hour into an occasion, the scene from a Noel Coward play.
Peppermint Lounge Twist Martini Glass
Peppermint Lounge Twist Martini Glass — The Peppermint Lounge, or
The "Pep," on West 45th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in New York City, was the
site where youth culture crossed generational and social boundaries in the early 1960s. They twisted to

thick and sturdy to survive the rigors of a Twist Party).
Anchor-Hocking Manhattan Glass
Anchor-Hocking Manhattan Glass — It's rumored that the first Manhattan
Cocktail was shaken in 1846, by a Maryland bartender trying to revive an injured duelist. He mixed rye whiskey,
sugar syrup and bitters. No word on the duelist, but one can assume he had a fighting chance. From there, the
drink traveled to Manhattan, where, in the Gay Nineties, vermouth was substituted for syrup, paving the way for
The Manhattan pattern is made up of concentric ribs, influenced by the signature
skyscrapers of New York. These ribs are pointed so that if you rub your fingernail across them, it will catch on
each one and you can hear a little "ting." The 9-ounce Manhattan pieces are heavier than most cocktail
glasses because of all the glass that goes into making the ribs. You'll be less nervous about using them around
It is a very good cookbook and I have yet to find a recipe that didn't turn out as it was supposed to.—Norm Peterson, Arizona
My hubby keeps looking in the cookbook, and asks "when will you cook this recipe?"—Lori Hamby, Florida

If a window does not open when you click on a link, check to see if you
are running a pop-up blocker, which you may need to turn off in order
for the new browser windows to open.
