Unique Cocktail Glasses
Bird Cocktail Glass
This bird cocktail glass is an elegant, creative glass that looks like something you’d find at a high end bar. It is perfect for serving floral, herb-infused cocktails such as this grapefruit crush, this blackberry bourbon smash. or this rosemary gimlet.
Milk Carton Cocktail Glasses
These fun milk carton shaped cocktail glasses look great with colored drinks, but it seems more fitting to use creamy, milk-based drinks such as this rumchata white russian, this baileys latte or this butterfinger drink.
Rose Wine Glasses
These Rose glasses are perfect for serving red wine in, especially on Valentine’s Day. But you can also use them to serve red or pink cocktails, such as this strawberry martini, this madras drink, this pomegranate gin cocktail or this bourbon cherry cocktail.
Octopus Cocktail Glass
This octopus cocktail glass is definitely unique! Any fun or creative colored drink would work well. Try this blue hurricane drink for a blue-tinted octopus. Or, make an easy vodka sunrise or amaretto sunrise for a cool effect as the red and orange colors blend together.
Swan Cocktail Glass
Skull Cocktail Glass
If you are looking for Halloween themed cocktail glasses, this skull one is perfect. Serve a bright red drink in it, such as this red devil drink. Or make the cocktail version of this alien brain hemorrhage shot for an extra creepy looking cocktail.
Stackable Fish Glasses
This set of cocktail glasses stack up to form a fish! This set is great for serving guests at a party, and it also makes a great gift. These cocktail glasses are pretty versatile and would work for any sort of mixed drink or simple cocktail like this limoncello tonic, this bourbon margarita or this cranberry mocktail.
Clay Cocktail Glasses
These clay mugs look like what you might see at a Mexican restaurant. Use them to serve margaritas, like this guava margarita or this mango jalapeno margarita. They are also great for mojitos — try a classic mojito, or a flavored one, like these blue mojitos or this chocolate mojito.
Rolling Diamond Glasses
These classy rolling diamond glasses will definitely impress guests. They are meant for bourbon or whiskey drinks. Don’t overfill them or they will spill! Try this pineapple old fashioned or this brown sugar old fashioned.
Mushroom Cocktail Glasses
These quirky mushroom cocktail glasses are very unusual, but eye-catching. They would work well for any interesting colored cocktails, such as this blue blueberry gin cocktail or this pink guava margarita.
All the cocktail glasses listed above can be purchased on Amazon. However, you can also find creative glassware on Etsy. For truly one of a kind glasses, try your local second hand store.
In general, you can use whichever cocktail you want. However, some glasses are best suited for certain colored cocktails or certain flavor themes (such as pineapple-flavored drinks in a pineapple shaped glass). Each of the unique glasses above have suggestions for cocktail recipes that would work well with the glass.
