Delicate and petite, cordial glasses are sure to indicate to your restaurant and bar customers that their after dinner drink is a specialty to be enjoyed for any occasion. These glasses are one of the more stylish options in Food Service Warehouse’s selection of liquor and liqueur glasses.
This selection of glasses is designed for sweet and aromatic drinks and the small size of each glass directs the sweetness directly to your taste buds as cordials are typically sweet and fruity beverages. More often than not, cordials in the United States are considered alcoholic beverages, but sometimes they do not contain alcohol and are diluted with water to achieve the proper balance of sweetness.
These liquor and liqueur glasses usually resemble wine glasses or goblets in design, but they are noticeably smaller and typically have a smaller stem. They usually hold somewhere between two and four ounces of liquid. Usually they are not filled to the brim with liqueur, only about halfway.
Most cordial glasses are clear glass or crystal, but some come tinted with colors. This can add a bit of flair to the dining experience, but usually clear glasses are considered more sophisticated. Some of these glasses may also have handles on the side, similar to a coffee mug but on a smaller scale. Some restaurants and bars might even garnish these after-dinner drinks with whipped cream, fruit or a cocktail umbrella for effect.
Regardless of whether you are serving amaretto, Chambord, Kahlua or Sambuca, these liquor and liqueur glasses are a great option for your bar because a variety of shapes are available, so you don’t have to use the traditional glassware that is seen everywhere.
