3 reasons why every home bar needs martini glasses

Hi there,

If there's one glass in the Sagrada collection that is the embodiment of style, sexiness, and sophistication — it's the  Sagrada Martini Glass.

Nobody knows for sure how the martini glass came about.

However, most mixologists and connoisseurs agree that it was first introduced in Paris back in the 1920s. It's rumored that, while the martini glass never really took off in France, it became hugely popular in the States during the prohibition era — owing to the growing popularity of cocktails.

You see, this glass is absolutely PERFECT for certain types of cocktails.

Specifically, those cocktails that are supposed to be served chilled, but without ice — like the martini (obviously), Manhattan, or the daiquiri.

Why?

Three reasons:

First — As with all stemware, it's long leg keeps hot summer hands away from the bowl, which helps keep your cocktail chilled for longer.

Second — The wide brim means that more of your cocktail is exposed to the air, allowing you to really appreciate the full beauty and fragrance of your drink as it opens up. (Especially important when mixing finer spirits.)

Finally — The steep slope of the cone means that lighter parts of the cocktail, which naturally float to the top, push down on the heavier parts with more pressure, which helps keep the cocktail together without it separating.

(If you've ever tried drinking a martini from a highball or wine glass, then you'll know what we are talking about! It's just not the same...)

Naturally, when my partner John and I set out to create a collection of luxury, art-grade glassware that captures the beauty of the Sagrada Familia Basilica, we knew that it wouldn't be complete without a  Sagrada Martini Glass.

Salud y amor y tiempo para disfrutarlo!

P.S. In case you wanted to get a second opinion, here's what some of our other customers had to say about the Sagrada Martini Glass:
