There’s almost always an array of delicious drinks at your average summer shindig: Iced tea, lemonade, soda, and adult beverages like beer. However, the cup options tend to be limited to one thing: Plastic cups. Don’t get me wrong, I have an inherent fondness for plastic cups because I associate them with having fun, but I’m not so sure they’re ideal for every bevvie. Studio Qubus’ Sommelier Wine Glasses seem like a great compromise.

Czech designer Maxim Velčovský perches plastic cup lookalikes atop stems for a wonderful highbrow/lowbrow effect. The shape is casual enough to be informal, but the material and stem make sipping something like a nice Pinot Noir feel a little less “frat party.” Now that’s something worth toasting!

    Now I don't have to feel so ridiculous when all the wine glasses are dirty and all that's left are plastic "crab shack" cups.

    Right up my alley in taste! A humorous wrapping for a high-class gift.

    This is such a fun idea. I wonder if they are easily broken? I'll just be over here drinking out of a mason jar if so.
