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.

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
