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 the most elegant way to sip Champagne, (or let’s be realistic — Prosecco), these coupe glasses have a rose-tinted base and a gold rim. Simply fabulous, darling. Set of two Champagne coupe €25, available to pre-order from April and the Bear.
