The manufacturer uses an innovative strengthening and heat-treating after-process called DuraTuff, which makes glasses thermal-shock resistant and mechanically stronger than regular glasses.
Q: What is the difference between a Gibraltar and a Cortado?
A: In practice, they are not actually different: they are simply different names for a classic drink comprised of espresso and warm milk. The ratio of coffee to milk usually ranges from 1 : 1 to 1 : 0.5.
The “Gibraltar” name comes from the glass in which the Cortado was served. The name was created by a quick-witted barista in a Blue Bottle Coffee shop in San Francisco in 2005. Since then, many West Coast baristas refer to this modern drink as the "Gibraltar,” while on the East Coast it is generally referred to as a “Cortado“.
Q: How many ounces of the base liquor (vodka, gin, whiskey etc.) should be in a cocktail?
A: There is usually 1.25 oz or 1.5 oz of base liquor in a cocktail.
Many casinos use a 1-ounce pour because people are there for entertainment, not for drinking.
Expensive restaurants and 5-star hotels sometimes serve cocktails with a 2-ounce liquor base. Their clientele is not really concerned about the cost and are more likely expecting a quality drink for a little extra coin.
The Rocks drinks typically take a 2-ounce pour.
