I have long had a love affair with glassware. It's just one of those things and I've confirmed that I have cousins and siblings with the same obsession, so I'm simply going to chalk it up to heredity. At any rate, yesterday I received a surprise delivery from my New York trip, the glassware I ordered from John Derian. It took a month, but they were worth the wait!
I found a photo of this glass in Food & Wine's Cocktails 2011 just before I left for New York and it's the primary reason I visited John Derian's shop (which I'm so glad I did). Made by Bollen, they're delicate, handblown glasses that are simple yet graceful. I love them, so I thought it only fair to share. (They can be ordered by phone.)
And if you're in the mood for a cocktail, the recipe for the Ginger Rogers, pictured in this glass, can be found here.
