30 Aug Copper Cups – Perfect for Cocktails
First of all, copper cups not only look fantastic but, they are great for cocktails. This is because they take on the icy-cool temperature of the drink keeping them cooler for longer. Bars commonly use copper drink-ware for many well-known favourite cocktails; the most popular being the Moscow Mule. Clinq’s copper cups are a twist on the stemless wine glass and bring a pizazz to cocktail cups. Our copper cups are handmade in India from solid copper, and are perfect for any type of cocktail your desire. Wine and soft drinks also work well; we especially love anything with crushed ice! Copper is naturally a very reactive material, and as a result if untreated, forms a patina which could ‘bleed’ into drinks. Clinq’s cups are coated in a food-safe clear lacquer which means they stay sparkling for longer, and stops the patina from forming.

These stunningly shaped and hand-hammered stemless copper cups are Clinq’s best seller in the Copper Collection range. A black gift-style box houses the unique pair of glasses and makes the perfect present for any cocktail lover. When a bartender pours a cold cocktail into a copper cup, the cup collects condensation giving a very cool appearance. You’ll certainly be impressing your friends when you serve up a homemade cocktail in these cups.

Note: Although a clear lacquer protects our copper cups, they still need some low-key maintenance and care to ensure they keep their shine. Because of the reactive nature of copper, liquid should not be left in them for extended periods (i.e. overnight). They are also not dishwasher friendly.
