A while ago, I invited 20 women friends over to spend the entire day watching all the “Twilight” movies and drinking bloody red cocktails. I needed some martini glasses! I didn’t want to serve my vampire cocktails out of disposable cups. Yuck. I wanted something fun and classy that I could use again! I didn’t really like the plain martini glasses; I wanted something more interesting and classier than that. Lucky for me, I found these Mikasa martini glasses. They came in sets of four, and they were on sale! Lead crystal glasses can get pretty spendy, and I guess because these glasses have etched patterns on them, maybe they were not as palatable to people, so they ended up on sale. I absolutely love them. They are whimsical and fun, and we use them all the time (well, not all 20 of them!)
They are a little bit bigger than your standard martini glass. They’re almost five inches across at the top and over seven inches tall. It was actually pretty risky letting my friends drink blood-red cocktails out of such big, breakable glasses! But we were lucky and no one spilled or broke one. The etching makes the drink inside look really pretty. I love these glasses!
