When you run a bar, whether in your restaurant or by itself, you need it to really look the part. Your customers will come to you expecting all of their drinks to be served in the proper barware, and you do not want to skimp out on your glasses. Different types of beverages are served in various types of glasses for a reason, and not only does it help make all of your drinks look much more professional, but the proper glass can improve each and every drink. Depending on what it is you are serving, the glass can have a considerable effect. Read on for some essential barware supplies that your restaurant needs so your customers can enjoy a drink with their meal.
Depending on what it is you’re serving, you might be able to get away with one kind of wine glass, or you might want to invest in several types. Some establishments are okay with using one general all-in-one glass. If you have a menu that is wine-heavy, you will want to get separate glasses for whites, reds, and sparkling wines. Sparkling wines should always be served with narrow flutes to preserve the bubbles in them. Meanwhile, red wines are served in glasses with wider bowls to help them aerate and allow the drinker to appreciate the aromas.
Highball Glasses and Barware
Like champagne flutes, the higher sides of a highball glass allow your carbonated beverages to retain their bubbles. Highballs are lovely for mixed drinks like a Bloody Mary, a mojito, or other drinks that need a lot of space.
Old Fashioned Glasses
The shorter sides and thicker bottom sections of these tiny stout glasses make them ideal for serving drinks like scotch and whiskey. The wider bottom keeps the drink much further from the table, reducing the possibility of water rings or heat absorption.
Pint Glasses and Barware
For a more all-purpose type of glass, pint glasses can be used for all kinds of drinks. They are the ideal option for serving beers as they allow for a nice head to form while pouring out drafts. They also work very well for serving soft drinks and water. They are also able to be used as a cocktail shaker too.
