What is a Cordial glass?

A cordial glass is a petite, stemmed glass used for serving small pours of cordials and liqueurs, often after a meal with dessert. It’s a fairly ornate style of glass, with a relatively tall, narrow bowl (almost like a champagne flute) that flares into a wider mouth.

Cordial glasses are mainly decorative, and make for an elegant conclusion to any upscale dinner. Sipping liqueurs neat is an age-old tradition in Europe, and one we wholeheartedly endorse—nothing like a good digestif to round out your evening.
