White wine gets warm very quickly in an acrylic wine glass. Martinis are disgustingly warm within seconds (ok, maybe minutes).
When we moved aboard two years ago, the old owners left their acrylic wine and martini glasses. We used them, begrudgingly, for about eight months. All the while we were on the lookout for the perfect boat wine glass.
We finally found the solution about a year-and-a-half ago: STAINLESS STEEL!
|New glasses in the front. Old acrylic glasses in the back.|
- White wine and martinis stay as cold as they would in glass vessels (perhaps even longer).
- Red wine keeps a good temperature, too.
- They look classy.
- We get lots of comments on them while walking the docks. (Some people refer to them as our "pimp glasses.")
- I would recommend these to people even if they aren't living on a boat.
