A brief history of Martini Glasses
Martini glasses, also known as cocktail glasses, have existed since the early 20th century.
They were initially designed to serve a specific cocktail, the Martinez, a modern martini's predecessor.
The glasses were typically made from metal and had a wide rim to accommodate the garnish.
As cocktails evolved, so did the martini glass.
The classic V-shaped glass we know today became popular in the 1950s and has remained a staple in cocktail culture ever since.
