Coupe glasses are typically reserved for special occasions — hastily taken out of the kitchen cabinet to serve generous pours of sparkling wine. For a long time, my husband and I swore by that rule, but when we encountered these stylish and minimal Made In Coupe Glasses ($59 for four), we suddenly felt like they would also be great vessels for other drinks. This may sound indulgent, but hear me out. If you love the feeling of drinking out of coupe glasses, why should you only use them for one thing and only once in a while?
That simple feeling became a bright spot in our winter routine. Last December, amid the recent surge of Covid cases, we found ourselves staying home and cooking regularly. Rituals like setting the table ahead of dinner and drinking out of these elegant glasses brought us a wholesome kind of joy. So if our habit of drinking regular wine or eggnog from the coupe glasses tells you anything, it’s that they deliver on all fronts.

First, they are made from a luxe-looking crystal glass that will instantly elevate your entertaining style. The material also feels quite strong, so while you still need to be careful when using them, the coupe glasses are far from being like egg shells. I once accidentally bumped one against my husband’s glass with a little more force than usual, and it didn’t even crack. So it’s safe to say these products are a bit more resistant than your average coupe glasses. Then the tapered lip shape makes for a smooth sipping experience, while the wide bowl allow for any liquid to breathe. This is great because it can really help bring out notes of a red wine you might otherwise miss. Plus, the stems feel firm and durable. As it turns out, the brand reinforced them with a titanium treatment for added durability.
Maybe you pay attention to the glasses that line up your kitchen shelves, or maybe you don’t. But when buying anything, I do my best to make sure the item will meet its basic function, but do it in the best way. So the not-too-fragile glass and firm stem are the two factors that make the coupe glasses winners in my book. Get them for the next special occasion, or do like us, and use them to make drinking your favorite beverage feel a little more special.
