Coupe Glass

Coupe glass stands as an embodiment of elegance, capturing the essence of a bygone era while adding a touch of glamour to modern mixology. Its graceful design and versatile appeal make it a cherished vessel for cocktails that enchant the senses.

What is a Coupe Glass?

The Coupe Glass, characterized by its shallow, saucer-like design, is a symbol of sophistication and allure in the world of mixology. With a capacity averaging 180 to 240 ml (6 to 8 ounces), this glass is designed to showcase the aromatic qualities of your concoctions while evoking a sense of timeless glamour.

Why is it Called a Coupe Glass?

The name "Coupe Glass" traces its origins to the French term "coupe," which translates to "cup" or "bowl." This glass was initially intended to hold champagne and other sparkling beverages, reflecting the elegant aesthetics of the early 20th century. Its shallow, wide bowl was believed to be the perfect vessel to capture the effervescence and aromas of these libations.

What Sets the Coupe Glass Apart from a Martini Glass?

The Coupe Glass and the Martini Glass may seem similar, but they possess distinct features. The Coupe Glass is characterized by its shallower bowl and wider surface area, which presents a broader canvas for cocktail aromas to bloom. While the Martini Glass typically features a stemmed, triangular bowl, the Coupe Glass boasts a more rounded and curvaceous profile.

Is it Coup or Coupe Glass?

The correct term is "Coupe Glass." The term "coup" is a common misspelling, but the accurate pronunciation and spelling are "coupe."

How to Elevate Your Coupe Glass Experience?

To make the most of your Coupe Glass, consider these Mixoloco tips:

  • Chill with Care: Like all glassware, chilling your Coupe Glass enhances the drinking experience. Place it in the freezer or fill it with ice water before pouring your cocktail.

  • Garnish Creatively: The wide rim of the Coupe Glass offers ample space for creative garnishes. Citrus twists, edible flowers, and aromatic herbs can add an enticing touch.

  • Serve with Finesse: Hold your Coupe Glass by the stem to prevent warming the drink with your hand's temperature. This ensures that your cocktail remains at its ideal serving temperature.
