    WHAT IS A ROCKS GLASS?

    A rocks glass, also known as an old fashioned glass and a lowball glass, is a short tumbler used for serving spirits, neat or with ice cubes (on the rocks).

  • Old Fashioned Glass. It has long been used to serve certain cocktails, such as the Old Fashioned, from which it got its name.
  • Over Ice. The glass is also used to serve spirits that are poured over ice; hence, that name.
  • Lowball. It is been called a lowball to differentiate it from the highball glass, which is 8 to 12 ounces and often referred to as a Collins glass because (you guessed it!) it is used to serve a Tom Collins.
  • Collins Glass. While most people wouldn’t notice, a Collins glass is slightly taller, and usually a couple of ounces larger than a highball due to the additional height.
  • Why “Ball?” The word “ball” for both glasses came from having fun while drinking whiskey, i.e. having a ball (source).
     
    Rocks glasses typically have a wide brim and a thick base, so that the non-liquid ingredients of a cocktail can be mashed using a muddler before the main liquid ingredients are added.

    Old fashioned glasses usually contain 6–10 US fl oz (180–300 ml). A double old fashioned glass (sometimes referred to by retailers as a DOF glass) contains 12–16 US fl oz (350–470 ml).

    Bottoms up!

    (Here’s the story behind the creation of the term.)
