12 Old Fashioned Glasses to Upgrade Your Next Cocktail Hour
Add these to your bar cart (and get a matching decanter too, if you can).
Coupes, collins, martinis, shots—there’s a whole world of cocktail glasses out there, and among the essentials is the Old Fashioned glass. They’re named after the classic cocktail, of course, and come in two sizes, regular and double. We’ve found that the double is the best choice, since it has more room and eliminates the need for buying two glasses. And as it turns out, there are plenty of options out there if you’re in the market, from an Art Deco-inspired glass (with a matching decanter!) to elegant Waterford Crystal. Read on for more that we’ve found.
An Art Deco Aesthetic
Crate and Barrel’s Jaxson glass has a gorgeous, Art Deco-inspired gold hexagonal pattern on it. Buy it on its own, or grab the matching decanter ($50) for a full set.

Cheekily titled “Hair of the Dog” as a nod to the hangover cure, this set includes four glasses that each feature a different dog, with accompanying descriptions of their “qualities and quirks.” You’ll have to hand-wash them, but considering the cute designs, it’s worth it.
