Crème de violette haters might just be convinced to give the floral liqueur a try after sipping this drink. Crafted with gin, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, and a splash of lemon juice, this cocktail boasts a delicate balance of floral and citrus notes. Served in a coupe glass, the Aviation not only delights the palate but also captivates with its pale lavender hue and timeless appeal.
The Martini, whether made with vodka or gin, is a classic candidate for the coupe glass. The slightly curved rim of the coupe is less likely to cause spills than the angular design of the classic Martini glass. If you want to highlight the citrusy, aromatic qualities of the gin, garnish with a lemon twist. If you like Martinis dirty, salty, and heavy on the vermouth, garnishing with an olive is a good move.
The Sidecar is a delightful blend of brandy, orange liqueur, and lemon juice. Although it follows the basic sour formula, the type of liqueur or brandy can significantly change the flavor of the drink, so getting the balance right is essential. No matter what ingredients you choose, the Sidecar looks great in a coupe glass.
The Daiquiri in its original form is an underrated and refreshing vehicle for rum. Skip the slushy form and enjoy the classic drink shaken and served up in a chilled coupe glass. With its combination of rum, lime juice, and simple syrup, the Daiquiri takes on a sophisticated edge in the shallow, wide-bowled vessel.
