@shahnm I post this and a few minutes later the summer cocktail thread mysteriously appears. It’s almost like someone at Meh is reading these posts. Or that I’m a little impatient and that was going to happen anyway. Either way, I could use a drink.
How tall are they (specifically the beer and juice glasses)? I want to make sure I have enough clearance in my freezer to put them rim side down per the instructions.
Also, according to the amazon listing they are NOT dishwasher safe, which makes sense. I was surprised to see them listed that way here. Which is it?
@psantora they are about 3" and 6" tall.
As for the dishwasher safe question, according to their promotional material, they have a one-way pressure valve that lets them be “dishwasher-proof,” but the box they come in says “hand wash only,” so to be on the safe side I would hand wash. Sorry for the confusion!
Okay, each lasts for up to thirty minutes, but how long do they take to refreeze? If they take more than sixty minutes to refreeze, then a three-pack will not allow for continuous usage, assuming each glass is used for a full thirty minutes of beverage cooling before being placed back in the freezer and removing a new glass for the next beverage.
I have already bought like a hundred or so Bubba, Stanley and that vaguely Italian sounding brand of thermos from you guys already. Literally have boxes of them in the basement. My ability to keep drinks cool OR warm is already far beyond my capacity to actually drink them.
“there are the people who prefer their cocktails neat. These people will speak to you for hours about nuance, about vanilla notes in their bourbon, about the smokey honey-laced leather taste of their Scotch. They despise ice because, in its quest to cool the beverage, it melts, thus reducing the potency of every flavor and ruining the drink’s balance.”
Wrong, sir! Wrong!
The bugger issue with ice in scotch is that it numbs the taste buds, not that it waters down the scotch. Many of us prefer a splash of water to “open up” the flavors. Although I agree that a lot of ice dilutes the drink, I would not drink a glass of fine scotch in these glasses either (not to mention they are the wrong shape for the best experience).
Well, i didn’t click unto meh.com until 3:29PM & the beer mugs were sold out. My Bad!! I was gonna say, “Now, you speakin to the chior”, but no mug, no Now!! Shit!! Maybe Morning Save will have some, but if you all are sold out, that’s highly unlikely!! As i said, “Shit!!”
