A Good Reason to Bring Back Cocktail Parties.

The Highball is a venerable cocktail that was dubbed “the high priest of tall drinks” by Esquire Magazine in 1949. It's a simple enough drink, a measure of spirits in a tall glass topped off with a carbonate (tonic, soda, etc.) and finished with a garnish, and when it’s served in a proper glass, the Highball is a cocktail that commands respect. The proper glass, a taller than standard tumbler, admirably narrow-mouthed to prevent carbonation collapse, was originally called the New York Long Drink glass. That was back around 1890, when legendary bartender Patrick Gavin Duffy invented the Highball format at Manhattan's Ashland House, where his customers included Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and J.P. Morgan. In recent years the highball has become fashionable again.

The Highball reaches perfection in this sleek, cylindrical glass made with clean, straight lines, a rolled rim that adds comfort to every sip, and a solid, weighted base. The most dashing feature is a bubble that appears to float in the bottom of the glass, adding an interesting visual element. It elevates beverage service to a higher level of sophistication, its crystal clear design beautifully showcasing chilled cocktails and refreshing long drinks served over ice. Flatter your Gin and Tonics. Perfect for entertaining at home or as a contemporary gift.
