Building a collection of real-deal glassware can take years, not to mention tons of cabinet space. Juice glasses, tumblers, and wine glasses are often sold in large sets, which can be helpful for those who entertain often. But what if you don’t have the budget — or the space — for a full set of every type of glass and cup known to mankind? Enter: The Drinks Way Kit from Leeway. We’re seriously crushing on this kit; it’s perfect for starter apartments or anyone with minimal kitchen storage.

The editors at The Kitchn have written about their love for Leeway’s Entry Way Kit (which boasts everything you need for at-home dining and entertaining), and The Drinks Way is just as great. The kit, which retails for $60, comes with five total pieces, including one 14-oz glass, an 18-oz glass, a wine glass, a flute, and a coupe glass. Each piece is streamlined, elegant, and modern, with a refreshingly timeless aesthetic that would look amazing on any bar cart. 

The two tumblers in the kit are serious workhorses — they’re the perfect size to handle everything from your morning orange juice or water to a sudsy cold beer for happy hour. However, unlike those random mason jars or plastic cups used in college, these have a definite glow-up appeal.

One of the things we love best about Leeway is their commitment to quality, and The Drinks Way Kit hits the mark, per usual. The glasses are designed in Brooklyn and hand-blown to be delicate yet durable — they’re even dishwasher safe. Plus, your glassware collection can easily be added to, by way of another Drinks Way Kit, or the brand’s glass-specific collections (For example, if you find yourself regularly having friends over for wine and cheese, you can supplement your drinkware with four more wine glasses).

Leeway is founded by two former NYC apartment dwellers, so you better believe they know a thing or two about making the most of a cramped space. They also know how easy it is to accumulate a lot of mismatched kitchen junk. Their small-but-curated collection of dinnerware and drinkware is a super smart way to build up your collection with pieces you’ll actually love. Cheers (literally!) to that.
