If you want to make Spanish-style gin& tonics (you know, the kind with premium tonic and extravagant botanical garnishes), you'll need proper glassware. If you're a stickler for authenticity, that means a stemware with a bulbous bowl, like the Stemmed Cocktail Glasses in this set by Urban Bar.
This set of 6 stemmed cocktail glasses is modeled after the balloon-shaped copa de balón glasses of Spain. These Urban Bar glasses hold 21 ounces, which make them large enough to accommodate plenty of ice to keep your gin & tonic extra cold. Compared to the highballs and Collins glasses popular in Britain and the United States, the oversize bowls also do a better job of accentuating gin's aroma--a very important feature indeed.
To build your drink right in the glass, fill it with medium ice cubes that are slow to melt. Give them a stir to chill the glass and then dump out any excess water that melts off the cubes. From there, add your gin and then your high-quality tonic water in a slow stream to retain as many bubbles as possible. After that come your botanical garnishes. Pick one to three that complement the profile of the gin you just poured. Common additions include citrus fruits, cinnamon sticks, black peppercorns, star anise, cucumber wheels, flower petals, cardamom pods, and basil. The fun is in tasting and experimenting, so don't hold back.
You also needn't limit this set's use to gin & tonics. Use the glasses to build and serve any long cocktails in your repertoire. No matter the recipe, they make a stunning presentation.
