Party season is in full swing, and you are planning on entertaining in your home.  There is no better time to get your bar in order. I’ve put together a list of  must-have glassware for your year-round entertaining needs. From highball to martini glasses to red and white glasses, here are the glassware basics for the perfect home bar!

HIGHBALL & LOWBALL GLASSES

WHITE WINE, RED WINE GLASSES & CHAMPAGNE  FLUTES

Low ball glasses: short and wide so you can smell the ingredients in the drink.

Highballs glasses:  are used to serve ‘tall’ cocktails and other mixed drinks that contain a large proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer, and are poured over ice. Depending on your entertaining style, I suggest picking up 6 to 8 of both low and tall glassware.

Champagne Flutes: or a glass tall enough to allow the bubbles and aromas to develop to their fullest.

Wine glasses. I use the same glass for both white and red but you can certainly get glassware for both. I have invested in stemless and stem wine glasses, thats a better variety for me.  If you entertain at home, invest in 8 to 12 of each.

Pint Glasses: I am a bubbly girl. These are a necessity.

Craft Beer Glasses:. I use the same glass for both white and red but you can certainly get glassware for both varietals. If you entertain at home, invest in 8 to 12 of each.

Wheat Beer Glasses. Depending on your entertaining style, I suggest picking up 6 to 8 of both short and tall glassware.
