Architecture of New York City Skyscrapers Inspires the Manhattan Cocktail Glass.
The Manhattan is a boozy, sophisticated drink that embraces the energy of the city after which it is named. Dark, a little sweet, strong, spicy, bitter, pungent, and very simple to make, it is still widely regarded as one of the greatest cocktails ever created.
As the "King of Cocktails," the Manhattan inspired its own post-Prohibition glassware, capturing the play between amber jewel-quality of whiskey and rosy hue of vermouth. The original "Art Deco" Manhattan glass was first produced for the bar trade in 1938. Its distinctive pattern is made up of concentric ribs, influenced by the architecture of New York City skyscrapers. 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."
These 9-ounce beauties are heavier than most cocktail glasses because of all the glass that goes into making the ribs, and we are less nervous about using them around clumsy friends. Offered in a handsome Gift Box Set of 2. Order several sets.
