I am not a fan of ‘adult beverages’ out of Styrofoam cups.
They tend to weep over time
They have a surface that is not very ‘carbonated beverage’ (i.e beer, hard cider etc) friendly
They do NOTHING good for the taste of wine.
@blaineg@werehatrack Just the other day I was thinking about ‘red solo cup’ (before this topic came up). No idea why. Then I recalled seeing high-end cups made in the same style, and I think there was a double-insulated stainless cup version and I thought I should look for that again. In red, of course.
EDIT now I remember I got out of my car at a grocery store and there was a crushed red solo cup in the parking lot. And brought back memories of past parties long ago. (though, folks, don’t throw your trash in the supermarket parking lot, please!)
It depends on just how particular the drink is. Is it a snotty liquid that refuses to touch anything less than antique lead crystal? It probably wouldn’t be in my house at all, and if it is, it will just have to deal with being seen in a common glass. I’m just not going to cave to attitude from my household liquids.
Livin’ simple and trying to get by
But honey, prices have shot through the sky
So I fixed up the basement with what I was a-workin’ with
Stocked it full of jelly jars and heavy equipment
We’re in the basement
10-20-30 million dollars, ready to be spent
EDIT so true then, so true now.
EDIT2 so now I guess you know what I drink out of…
It matters to me, but I almost never drink alcohol at home. I am in the process, however, of replacing all my everyday drinking glasses with British nonic pint glasses, because they are superior in every way.
