For coffee shops, bars and ice cream or gelato shops, sampler cups provide the right vessel for serving samples of drinks or ice cream. Since they come in many shapes and sizes, you can choose the glass that is right for you. A variety of sampler glasses are available, from sampler mugs to miniature goblets. Coffee can be served in the sampler mugs. For ice cream, yogurt and gelato samples, consider serving in a sampler goblet or glass cone. Samples of cocktails can be served in mini martini, tulip or flute glasses. A variety of straight-sided glasses and mugs are available for serving beer samples.
In addition to being useful for serving samplers, these glasses can be used to serve shots or dessert cocktails at a party or event. They are also useful as sample glasses for soups and sauces. Footed cups are elegant, and glasses with stems make for dainty sampler cups, allowing customers to hold the stem of the glass between their fingers.
