A cocktail glass (also called a martini glass) is a stemmed glass, typically about 250 mL which has a cone-shaped bowl placed upon a stem above a flat base. It is mainly used to serve cocktails. As with other stemware, the stem allows the drinker to hold the glass without affecting the temperature of the drink. The wide rim allows a large amount of space for adding garnishes or rimming the glass (e.g. sugar rim).

The martini glass is an iconic symbol of cocktails.


One variation is the double martini glass which is taller and wider at the opening than a standard martini glass.

Another variation is the stub glass, which is identical to the martini glass, except that the base is attached directly to the bowl, removing the fragile stem.
