Cocktail Glasses

Shaken or stirred, margaritas or martinis – we’ve got the cocktail glass hire you need for your party or occasion in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

If you’re holding a cocktail party you’re going to need a range of cocktail glasses suitable for the drinks you serve. We have a range of hurricane glasses, martini glasses and margarita glasses available to ensure you have everything you can think of.

What kind of cocktail glass hire do I need?

Are you serving specific drinks at your occasion? If you know what you’re serving at your cocktail party then picking the specific cocktail glass hire you need for the occasion is easy. The classic martini glasses are perfect not only for Martinis, but also cocktails such as Gimlets, Cosmopolitans and Negronis. They have a delicate conical shape which is perfect for these drinks. Margarita glasses are slightly more rounded than a martini glass and are great for the classic margarita or a dacquiri. The hurricane glass is taller, and reminiscent in shape of a hurricane lamp (hence the name). These are more suited for taller drinks like a Singapore Sling or Pina Colada.

Do I need to clean my cocktail glass hire before it is collected?

There is nothing worse after a big event to be confronted by the chore of washing up hundreds of glasses. Cleaning glassware isn't only a bothersome chore though; from our experience we know that glasses most frequently get broken while being cleaned.

This is why we have made it mandatory for all glassware items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing a customer needs to do is to ensure that all glasses are free of food debris or liquids before repacking them ready for collection.

What do I need to know about delivery of cocktail glasses for hire

Like all of our glassware, we clean and check all of our cocktail glass hire before it’s sent out for delivery. We use specialised crates to minimise breakages in transit but they can occur; for this reason we always recommend ordering a few glasses extra just in case. We wouldn’t want an unexpected hiccup to ruin your party after all.
