Today I wanted to share with you about these new cups that came into my possession recently. They are a favorite of the author of Shake Strain Done by J. M. Hirsch as a preferred cups to hold his home craft cocktails. I can see why. Below are two pictures of the cups of Gin & Tonic and Mojito that I learned how to make by following the recipes from Shake Strain Done. They all are beautiful cups! The company, Duralex USA, offers many designs, but the Hexagon Tumblers caught my attention. I have attached the link to the tumblers on Duralex’s website for your convenience. The drinks looks awesome in it. The tumblers are small enough to easily hold in your hands and big enough to hold an entire recipe of mojito. I like how it’s easy to store in my cabinets because it’s stackable and takes up less space. Each box contains a set of 6 cups and it’s enough for home use and to serve family and friends.
