Share your favorite holiday drink with all your friends with this seven-piece glassware set. This simple set allows you to use it for holiday celebrations or any parties you host throughout the year. Pro tip: Rachael and her friend Mary Giuliani (who has a great cocktail book!) recommend making a big-batch cocktail when hosting get-togethers. You can then serve beer and wine alongside it so you don't have to set out your entire bar. It's one less thing to stress about as the host, and it's financially savvy too!
