Long drink glasses – a glass that allows you to sip your beverage in style
What is a long drink glass?
Long drink glasses, sometimes referred to as highball glasses are tall glasses - usually with a capacity of 300 ml - with typically straight sides and a flat base or footed stem. Long drink glasses are often used to serve mixed cocktails that include a higher proportion of non-alcoholic mixers like soda, tonic water, or juice and a lower proportion of alcoholic beverages like gin, vodka, or whisky.
They take their name from the popular Finnish long drink - lonkero, which is a mixed drink traditionally made from gin and grapefruit juice.

What's the difference between a cocktail glass and a long drink glass?
Apart from the shape, the main difference between a cocktail glass and a long drink glass is the volume. Since a long drink is a refreshing drink with a relatively low alcohol content made with the addition of a large amount of ice, fruit juice or other beverages (cola, tonic, soda water) it has a larger capacity.
