This is a very user-friendly martini glass. The stem/base of the glass is large enough to be very comfortable to hold and heavy enough to make the glass very stable (unlike the typical martini glass, which is just an accident waiting to happen). The bowl of the glass is large enough to accommodate a large martini and still leave enough room that there is little chance of spilling. And the glass is quite attractive.
Martinis are the first...dessert the second and then let your imagination go. Go for a Mashed potato martini, with savory meats, vegetables and sauce in small servings for a Martini party. An extremely versatile product and elegantly shaped. I am having fun with them.
Our former Martini glasses were standard shaped, Bed, Bath & Beyond. Nothing wrong with them; just dull. These Samba are excellent. The thick glass and smooth shape sits in your hand with just the right weight. We drink martinis maybe once every other year. But it feel so good to have them around, to look cool "just in case." Call me shallow, but isn't that want a Martini is all about? I got these on sale. If you are debating, order them. If you are debating and they are on sale, order them yesterday.
The style of these glasses is just perfect. I don't think, however, that I would have chosen such large ones if I were shopping in a regular store. If I drank a martini that filled this glass I'd be in very big trouble!

Excelente. These martini/dessert glasses were more beautiful in person. They are a little delicate on top and sturdy on bottom. Make for a beautiful dinner table or luncheon with my Red Vanilla White Rice dishware.
