Barware

Barware refers to the tools necessary to operate a functioning bar and make cocktails, as well as all of the glassware available for the drinking of the cocktails. Barware includes wineglasses, martini glasses, Collins glasses, shot glasses, highball glasses, pint glasses, margarita glasses, champagne flutes, brandy snifters, pint glasses, and Irish coffee glasses. The reason there are so many types of glassware for imbibing cocktails and alcoholic beverages is that the shape of the glass affects how the temperature of the drink is maintained while it is consumed and how the flavors are released from the liquid. Most bars and entertainment establishments (and dedicated hosts and hostesses) realize that imbibing a drink is a sensory experience which involves all five senses, and the specialized barware intended for certain drinks can improve the experience.

Martini glasses, wine glasses, champagne flutes and margarita glasses fall into the category of stemware. Stemware is so called because the glasses have stems (the part between the base, which rests on the table, and the bowl, which holds the drink). The purpose of the stem is to allow you to drink from the bowl without touching it, and therefore altering the temperature of the liquid. Wine glasses are shaped to direct the flavors and aromas of wine toward the nose and the mouth, and even to the part of the mouth where the flavors are best appreciated. The bowls of wine glasses are designed to be large enough to allow the wine to "breathe" and to be swirled, which releases the wine's aromas. Red wine glasses are larger than white wine glasses and have a wider bowl, whereas champagne flutes are narrower than either white or red wine glasses.

Pilsner glasses, pint glasses and goblets are among the glasses used for serving beer, and many craft beers and imported beers have special glasses made by the brewer for the serving of that particular beer. Collins glasses, highball glasses (often called cocktail glasses), and margarita glasses are among the barware used to serve cocktails. The sizes and shapes of the glasses differ, and lend themselves to the proper proportions of ingredients needed in the cocktail, and perhaps holding the proper amount of ice. Good glassware used properly can improve the way that beverages look and taste, the way the aromas are released, and the way that drinking them feels to both the hand and mouth.
