When Werblers get together on the holidays, a cluster of scotch glasses is left behind on every horizontal surface. It can be hard to tell which drink belongs to which relative, especially as ice melts and fill levels morph when no one is looking. Thankfully, there are simple ways (beyond the old red lipstick trick) to differentiate between germs.
With good DIY ideas floating around, as well as products made specifically for the purpose of tagging stemware, there's no reason to let unidentified beverages clutter up the kitchen. While alcohol does kill germs, in this season of dangerous influenza, perhaps it is best to be safe rather than sorry. Protect your guests' health and dazzle their eyes with your own creative solutions.
