5 Classic Cocktails To Enjoy In Vintage Inspired Classic Glassware

The Modern Home Bar’s classic rocks glasses are inspired by classic elements found in vintage items.  We’ve updated these elements, placing them on “blank” rocks glasses, and keeping them relevant to today’s modern lifestyle and how we like to drink. 

When it comes to classic cocktails such as the Negroni, Old Fashioned and Gimlet, serving them with our Classic Collection glassware is the final finishing touch needed for a complete cocktail experience. We believe a vintage-inspired classic cocktail glass deserves a classic cocktail to bring the experience full circle.

Designed in black and white, our patterns include peek-a-boos, twirling details, and stately finishes. We love bringing the stories behind each one of these glasses to the present, helping to remind us of our own journey through life.

We updated the pattern with a frosted finish and placed it on a rocks glass that is more suitable for today’s modern lifestyle. We believe our Filigree Nouveau Rocks glasses gives an elegant nod to classic cocktails such as  the Old Fashioned
