Despite its carbonated connotations, the coupe glass has made a comeback in the craft cocktail world. For your at-home Valentine’s celebration, Brian Hart Hoffman recommends the French 75 from his book, The Coupe: Celebrating Craft Cocktails and Vintage Collections, which he developed with Washington, D.C. restaurant Acadiana. “It’s a beautiful blend of a sparkling wine or champagne and a cocktail, so a perfect marriage of what the coupe glass is intended to be used for,” he explains. “I also drank French 75s on my first date with my husband so I think it’s a perfect selection for Valentine’s Day.”
