Here’s an odd question. Recently, in an antique shop, I found an old Libbey mixing glass. It caught my eye because it had four cocktail recipes etched on the sides: Martini; Manhattan; Cosmopolitan; and Lemon Drop. Now, I’ve seen mixing glasses with Cosmo recipes on them. But never Lemon Drop. And never Cosmo and Lemon Drop together. The choice of recipes seemed to scream “1990s.” Moreover, the recipe for the Martini is for vodka and vodka only. No suggestion of gin.
I bought the glass because it seems unusual and possibly an artifact of the recent past. But I’ve not been able to find out anything about it. Libbey was unhelpful. All they could tell me was that they didn’t make/sell it anymore, and therefore it was “vintage.” And they apparently keep no records of their “vintage” glassware. Anyone ever seen this glass or know anything about it?
