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

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.....
