Class up your Zoom happy hour with our chic glassware edit

Make sure your socially-distant weekend drinks with friends are suitably stylish with this chic glassware, whether you’re a whiskey aficionado or a lover of cocktails.


It’s the weekend, and we’re not letting a pandemic get in the way of having drinks with friends. Zoom happy hours are taking place across the country, and give us the chance to socialise safely in the comfort of our own homes.

However, if you’re sipping wine out of a chipped tumbler or a margarita out of a mug, now is the time to up your glassware game. Here is our edit of glassware for every occasion.

For bubbles
