1. Highball Glass: Tall and straight, perfect for gin and tonics.
2. Martini Glass: Wide bowl, ideal for chilled martinis and cosmos.
3. Old Fashioned Glass: Short and stout, great for whiskey-based drinks.
4. Coupe Glass: Vintage style, best for champagne or classic cocktails.
5. Collins Glass: Similar to highball but slimmer for Collins cocktails.
