I understand the actual "shape" of the martini glass has evolved with culture, but where did the shape originate? No one seems to know for sure!

Don't have an answer to that, but I've heard the champagne glass is in the shape of Marie Antoinette's breast. -- Zoe

This article is wrong[edit]

I used to be a bartender, and also went to school for bartending, and I can tell you that this article is wrong. A cocktail glass is 4 1/2 ounces. A martini glass is 6-7 ounces. The two are not the same at all. What's pictured is not a cocktail glass. Here is an example of what a cocktail glass looks like: 02:56, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

The "Martini Glass" used to have a Russian name. Does anyone know it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:08, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Errors and additions[edit]

The article says "Today, the drink is used to serve a variety of cocktails." I'm pretty sure this should say "the glass."

However, the article also says that a cocktail glass is not the same as a martini glass, then goes on to say that a cocktail glass is commonly used to serve a Martini. I feel that this deserves some clarification. HOW does the cocktail glass differ from a martini glass? This should be in the article. (Aside: isn't it improper to link "martini glass" to the article on the Martini drink? They are not the same thing.) Elindsey83 (talk) 03:30, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
