The Uses Of Personalized Highball Glassware

Personalized highball glassware has more uses than many realize. Most believe the glass is intended for scotch and soda, but there are many more purposes for it. In fact a highball is any drink that mixes spirits with a big portion of any non-alcoholic drink.

The glass is often called a tumbler these days, and many use it for soft drinks because of its size and length. Strictly, it's supposed to hold between 240 and 350 ml. The name is believed to have come from a slang word for a serving of whiskey, which used to be called a 'ball'.

Alternatively, there are many derivative words related to trains that some believe the name is taken from. This is because tall drinks were often served on trains. Highballs label drinks like bourbon and coke, gin and tonic and seven and seven.

They're commonly served with ice and are sometimes served instead in a Collins glass. These drinks are too often ignored when it comes to garnishing. They suite simple decoration.

A gin and tonic is always served with a slice of lemon cut over the edge of the glass. Other gin mixers are sometimes served similarly, with a slice of lime replacing the lemon. Sprigs of mint are used in other mixed drinks, but creative barmen tend to come up with their own blends.

This gives them complete freedom to disobey tradition and come up with their own way of garnishing for presentation. These glasses should always be frosted before the drink is poured. This looks attractive and keeps the drink crisp for longer.

While professionals tend to fill highballs with ice, opinions differ about whether this should be crushed or cubed. Crushed ice can melt faster, introducing a high water content to the drink that can spoil its taste. When using personalized highball glassware, choice of ice can be made according to the weather--warmer days use cubes while cold days use crushed ice.
