Anybody out there like this trend of Martini Stemware without the ‘Stem’?
I’ve noticed a number of places serving my Martinis in glassware that is short, almost stubby, with a bulbous ‘foot’, and no noticeable ‘stem’. The bowl is still an inverted triangle shape, but that’s about all that remains of the traditional Martini stem we all ‘grew up’ with.
I’m sure it doesn’t change the taste of the drink. And it may actually keep the drink colder longer … see my past posts about cold stems. Furthermore, with the lower center of mass it will make the glass less likely to tip over. Would that be a reason the bar is using them? Less breakage?
But it just doesn’t seem ‘right’. Maybe I’m too much of a traditionalist, but I don’t think I like this trend. Any comments or thoughts?
