Coupe glasses are usually reserved for special occasions – hastily pulled out of the kitchen cupboard to serve generous pours of sparkling wine. For a long time, my husband and I swore by this rule, but when we came across these sleek, minimalist Made In Coupe glasses ($59 for four), we suddenly had the feeling that they would also be great containers for other drinks. This may sound indulgent, but hear me out. If you like the feeling of drinking from coupe glasses, why should you only use them for one thing and only once in a while?

This simple feeling has become a bright spot in our winter routine. Last December, amid an increase in COVID cases, we found ourselves staying home and cooking regularly. Rituals like setting the table before dinner and drinking from these elegant glasses have brought us joy. So if our habit of drinking regular wine or eggnog from coupe glasses tells you anything, it’s that they deliver on all fronts.

If you like the feeling of drinking from coupe glasses, why should you only use them for one thing and only once in a while? This simple feeling has become a bright spot in our winter routine.

First, they’re crafted from luxurious crystal glass that will instantly elevate your entertainment style. The material is also quite strong, so although you should always be careful when using them, the cut glasses are far from eggshell. Once I accidentally banged one against my husband’s glass with a little more force than usual, and it didn’t even crack. So it’s safe to say that these products are a bit tougher than your average cut glasses. Next, the tapered lip shape allows for a smooth sipping experience, while the wide bowl allows any liquid to breathe. This is great because it can really help bring out notes in a red wine that you might otherwise miss. In addition, the rods are firm and durable. It turns out that the brand reinforced them with a titanium treatment for added durability.

Maybe you pay attention to the glasses that line your kitchen shelves, or maybe you don’t. But when buying anything, I do my best to make sure that the item will perform its basic function, but do it in the best way. So, the not too flimsy glass and the firm stem are the two factors that make the cut glass winners in my book. Get them for your next special occasion, or do as we have, and use them to make drinking your favorite drink that little bit more special.
