20 Sparkling Champagne Glasses + Champagne Drink Recipes

by Grace Bonney


I’m far more likely to wear champagne earrings than I am drink actual champagne. I’m just not much of a drinker (I’m pretty sure I’m mildly allergic to all alcohol) but when I do have a drink, it’s almost always a bubbly one. And while I love a simple clear glass for all my drinks, it’s not to break out something special every now and then to mark a big occasion. So to celebrate the end of the week I thought I’d roundup some beautiful champagne glasses and recipes to kick off your weekend. From colorful flutes and vintage-inspired coupes to super-modern ‘inside out’ glasses, there’s definitely a glass in here for every sipper.

Suggested For You


  • What a fabulous post for friday afternoon! I could just do with a glass of chilled champagne from those gorgeous flutes with the gold floral pattern… I can almost taste it!

  • Lovely collection! My dream glasses are the Swarovski Crystalline Flutes, but at $399 for 2, they will remain a dream.

  • I love coupes! I am always keeping an eye out for them at the thrift store, but good ones are so hard to come by. How can you go wrong sipping champagne from the bosom of Marie Antoinette?

  • Prosecco is my all-time fave, and I have a thing for flutes. Thanks for this. I found a dreamy set of three baby blue-tinted fluted with starbursts etched all over in GoodWill – I’ll spend the rest of my life searching for a fourth (and probably never find it – they look vintage).

  • I love a good Bubbly, and to me the glass is just as important as what is being served! I always want the fancy glass, always!

    I have to say I am disappointed that you didn’t feature any real vintage champagne glasses. I sell all kinds of vintage, but vintage champagne glasses are one of my hottest items, so I know that there are a lot of people out there that love and use real vintage glassware especially coupe champagne glasses.

    Adding some Real vintage glasses would have been the perfect complement to this post and all the delicious champagne recipes.

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this in
    my search for something regarding this.
