My retro finds: vintage glassware

I’m sure you learned from my last post how much I love the 1950’s and 1960’s. I love trifltng for home decor and kitchen ware. Everyti me I go to a second-hand store, garage sale, or antique mall, I am on the look out for good retro housewares. So, you can imagine that I have quite a collection by now. I love showing my friends my new finds when ever they come over, so I figured I would you as well.

Today has also been one of the hottest days this summer, so I am also going to share my favorite cocktail recipe!

Like I said, I love retro kitchen ware and have a weakness for good vintage glassware.

I found this blue set at the Old Strathcona Antique Mall. It is a set of 8, vertically striped glasses, which sit in a gold carrier, with a wooden handle

These glasses were a good find at $18. I usually see sets of 6, so at 8, it was a great deal.

My all time favorite cocktail is a Long Island Ice Tea. It’s a perfect hot weather kinda drink. Here is a recipe for you kittens to cool down with.

What you need:

1 part vodka,1 part tequila,1 part rum,1 part gin,1 part triple sec,1.5 parts sweet and sour mix, and a splash of coke. Put all ingredients in a shaker with ice, give a quick shake, and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

This pink and blue set was an amazing find. They are in perfect condition and so retro! They have a pink and blue triangle design, with gold rims.

I found this set at Value Village, of all places, for $7. This is one of favorite thrifted finds and I usually reserve their use for ladies night.

So, what do you think? Do you have any retro glassware? Keep tuned for more posts on my various vintage finds.
