Plastic glassware? Really?

Plastic martini glasses?! The very mention of such a vessel probably sends shivers down the spines of every martini snob this side of the moon. I'm not a martini snob, so it doesn't bother me, and I would urge anybody with a pragmatic sense about them to ponder the pure practicalities before forming any strong emotions on the subject.

The martini glass itself signifies a certain elegance, that is ultimately enhanced by the fact that the martini is largely considered to be classy in nature. Keeping that in mind, let's talk about...

Plastic martini glasses

A couple years ago I had a party, I was entertaining some guests as it were, and some of my glassware ended up broken. Have you ever been that guy or gal at the party, who ends up doing stuff so dastardly and destructive that you feel the need to apologize for months afterward? Yeah, me too, but I wasn't the one breaking stuff at this particular party.

So, my glassware lay in shards on the floor, the hapless drunk stumbling around the house, knocking all kinds of stuff to the floor. By the time it was all said and done, I think I needed to remodel the entire abode.

When it came time to pick out glassware, it seemed the prudent choice to buy 2 sets; glassware and plastic glassware. I even found some really cool Lexan martini glasses at some camping outfitter. I've since found others on the internet. If you can't find it online, it doesn't exist. Iv'e been supporting that personal theory for years now.

Actually, cheap plastic martini glasses are remarkable easy to come by. So, look around, click on some of the links on the page, see what you come up with.

Other glassware solutions

Guess what, now that you've taken the leap and added plastic martini glasses to your collection, you can do the same with other types of glassware. Why stop with martini glasses, right? If you want durability and functionality for the long haul, why not add plastic wine glasses, margarita glasses, shot glasses, Collins glasses, highballs, rocks glasses and others to your collection?

Plastic glassware is the perfect accompaniment to any collection, allowing you to entertain without having to worry about breakage or any other damage that sometimes occurs when guests get reckless.

So, the video on the right pretty much shows that if you can get past the bougy mindset that goes along with stereotyping plastic glassware, the same quality culinary experience can be enjoyed with plastic as with glass.

Not that you're bougy by nature, I just know I went through a phase where I would have considered plastic cocktail glasses a bit 'trailer park' if ya know what I mean. Not any longer; I proudly own plastic glassware in all shapes and sizes, and couldn't be happier.
