Jakobsen Design Cocktail Glasses

Jakobsen Design Cool Cocktail Glasses and Carafes // stirandstrain.comMaybe it’s my background in the fine arts, or my love of good design that drew me to these hand blown glasses from Martin Jakobsen. Whatever it was, when I first laid eyes on them I HAD TO HAVE THEM. The possibility of making creative drinks had me running to their site to get some, and the price point wasn’t too hard on the wallet either.

Jakobsen Design Cool Cocktail Glasses and Carafes // stirandstrain.comThey’re super delicate and very elegant, but that doesn’t have to stop you from making a cocktail with a creature from the black lagoon inside. If you’re looking to get more creative with your cocktail glassware these just might inspire your inner artist.
