Which drink would be served in this glass, please?
« on: February 12, 2009, 03:57:13 PM »
I have never used these glasses as I am not sure whether they are for pre dinner sherry or after dinner liquers! Or possibly something else entirely. I would appreciate help in avoiding a Faux Pas.Only 2.7 inches high and two inches circumference so not much room for liquid of any sort, really.

JP you'd not get much Gin in a 2"  glass!   ;D

Such small ones are usually (a) liqueur or (b) shot glasses - (a)  small portion of something sipped slowly or (b) small portion of something slugged down in one!

So how much Gin do you need in your glass  Anne, fill up with 2 inches of old Gin in the glass and you would soon be Theolonius .JP

JP's probably right about the gin, it's not necessarily mixed with anything, and that glass would hold a measure
