How to Serve Summer Cocktails
There are a ton of different glassware and patio options to serve your drinks in but here are a few of my favorites:

- Unbreakable whiskey glasses that look like crystal.
- Acrylic glasses are always a good idea as they won’t shatter if you drop them, this has a variety so you can get both short and a tall glass.
- Unbreakable champagne flutes for morning mimosas on the deck.

- Don’t forget a cocktail shaker.
