Small Juice Glasses: 4 oz, 5 oz, and 6 ounces

Updated on October 24, 2014

On the search for a set of unique small juice glasses.....

It seems that we drink more juice than we used to. When I was a kid, my grandparents had a set of ruby red small juice glasses that were just right for drinking juice. Now it is hard to find a juice glass that only holds 4 or 6 ounces! Most of the glasses I've been finding hold 8 or 12 ounces.

My Mother-in-Law was recently diagnosed with diabetes and I went to some health classes with her on dieting. I learned that she should only drink juice in small quantities. To encourage this, I thought I'd buy some small juice glasses. This led me on a multi-day search!

Here are the results of my search. Maybe I can save you some time and help you find exactly what you're looking for.

Small Tumblers - Many size choices, smallest one is 4.25 ounces

These are classy glasses. They are made by the same French company that invented tempered glass. They are twice as resistant to breaking than normal glass!

Best of all, this set of 6 is quite affordable, and comes in a variety of sizes.

5 oz Juice Glass Set - The smallest juice glass you'll find on Amazon.com

You know you've found small juice glasses when the negative reviews complain that these glasses are oversized shot glasses or fine for kids but not adults! These are the smallest brand new set that I could find on Amazon. I wish Amazon had more variety, but it looks like you'll have to turn to Ebay if you want something more colorful!

About Drinking Juice if you are Diabetic

4 ounces = 1 Serving

Although whole fruit is better than juice, most people who are Diabetic can drink some juice as part of their diet.

Four ounces of orange, grapefruit or apple juice are considered one serving or 15 grams of carbohydrate. Many Diabetic diets track the number of carbohydrates, so be sure to include juice in your count.

If you drink juice on an empty stomach, it will probably be converted into sugar faster than if you drink it as part of a meal.

Alternatives

When we weren't sipping juice, we were often enjoying cold well water. My Grandma kept a pitcher of it in the fridge. It was the most delicious tasting water.

But if you don't enjoy the taste of water (or don't have any good tasting water!), there are lots of alternative, low-calorie drinks that are good for you. You could try adding lemon to your water... or you can get really creative with one of these Fruit Infusion Recipes. These are great drinks for the summer time!

4 oz Juice Glasses - New ones are hard to find, so look to Ebay for retro ones

You can really get some stylish tableware when you buy vintage!

These Juice Glasses are 6 3/4 ounces each! - High Quality Thick Glass, Made in Italy

I keep thinking back to those summer days....

I have so many great memories of sitting on my grandparents' porch, sipping some orange juice and eating frozen grapes after a swim in their pond. Those were special times... As I think about decorating my house, I find myself browsing Ebay to see if I can find items that remind me of my childhood.

Which is what brought me to searching for a set of ruby red drinking glasses.....

These are the glasses that remind me of sipping juice on the front porch at my Grandparents' house! Ah, memories.....

      I have a set of small, dark green juice glasses because they remind me of my grandmother. Luckily I found them at a yard sale (before the eBay days).

      I used to like the small size juice glasses too. Thanks for the memories; I will also be looking to find some of these now.

      I love this story! You searched a whole week, now that's love! I really like the mini lesson on juice and diabetes. We all could benefit from smaller portions. I remember we had those small Anchor Hocking glasses growing up and also we had some that jelly would come in.

      I was out for breakfast a few months ago and I ordered an orange juice. The waitress came back with what looked like a 10oz glass. I couldn't believe it. Who drinks 10oz of OJ in one sitting? I'm all for smaller glasses for juice and other beverages too.

      We always had the tiny juice glasses when I was growing up. In fact my mom still has a few up in her cupboard. Oldies but goldies. My [Dishes&Dinnerware] Angel Blessing today is SWAH and featured on http://www.squidoo.com/my-angel-wings

      I found a set of glasses that are just perfect called Libbey Chicago juice glasses. They are a little over 4 oz, but I only seem to find them on restaurant sites that charge a ton of shipping. I also like to drink from small glasses. I think will get the ones from Amazon.

      I like juice in a small glass too, and agree with you they are hard to find. I've actually found some in second hand stores.
