Grab These Cocktail Glasses Inspired By Reese Witherspoon, and Then Make an Autumnal Drink
Reese Witherspoon is getting in the autumn mood. First, she set the space with her October-themed front porch decor, and now she’s stirring up a fall-themed apple cider cocktail and serving the concoction in a trendy cocktail glass that you’re going to want to get your hands on.
“My Fizzy Apple Cider cocktail recipe! Perfect for fall and pairs well with just about any dance move.” Diane Keaton said it best in the comments: “YUM!!!”
It is proven that the glass makes the cocktail? Depending on who you ask, the answer might be “definitely.” According to Spoon University, different shaped glassware isn’t just for looks. Certain glasses can actually enhance the aroma of an alcoholic beverage, thus affecting the flavor, as well as correct the temperature of the beverage you’re enjoying.
Witherspoon’s cocktail glass is a mix between a snifter glass, which has a short stem, and a coupe glass. Witherspoon’s version is big enough for a good helping of beverage but leaves out the risk of cracking a delicate stem—like the Copeland Cocktail Glass from CB2 ($9.95 each).
This block-stem design from Lenox ($86 for two) would fit great in a more modern aesthetic. And the gold-trimmed rim is super luxe matched with the smoky gray crystal.
The Gatsby Tumblers from Anthropologie ($38 for two) are a fun take on the short-stemmed cocktail glasses. The ridged glass gives some Art Deco-inspired interest and the gold base adds a bit of glamor to what could be a basic glass.
When you’re making a cocktail as good as Witherspoon’s sounds, put away the skinny flutes and shallow coupes and bring on the hefty snifters, goblets, and tumblers.
