Ever notice how fun it is to swirl your glass when sipping on a smooth concoction? Apparently so did the makers of the Roller Rock Glass ($22). Arriving with its own ice ball mold, this clever glass features a spike in the middle to guide the ice ball around the edge of the glass, slowly cooling your drink without watering it down.
Wines, brandy, margaritas, even martinis — it seems like every drink has a signature glass to go along with it, so why not whiskey? Developed in collaboration with the biggest companies in the whiskey-making business, the Stolzle Glencairn Whiskey Glass ($7) is designed specifically for sipping on the brown stuff, with a 6.75 oz. capacity, lead-free crystal construction, a wide bowl to better show off the color, and a tapered mouth for easy drinking and more aroma.
Add a little Scandanavian flair to your weekend beer blast with these Iittala Krouvi Beer Mugs ($8/each; $27/4-pack). Designed by Oiva Toikka in 1973, they feature textured sides, smooth rims, embossed measurements on the side, and an inviting, broad shape that encourages, shall we say, an enhanced drinking pace.
