Tumblers, Hiballs & Rocks Glasses, Oh, My! What's With All the Drinkware Names?
Posted by Krista Fabregas - Lead Buyer on 3/20/2012 to Entertaining & Serving Tips
When shopping for drinkware you may run into some pretty odd names -- like DOF's, Hiballs, Pints, Rocks and Tumblers. These terms originated in the bar industry to describe the variety of glasses used for serving different drinks.
 
Knowing which types of glasses these terms describe can come in handy, especially if you're shopping for drinkware online. Here are a few tips to help you decipher these common drinkware terms:
  • Hiball glasses are generally tall and thin and hold from 9 to 16 ounces
  • Tumblers and Coolers are generally larger tall glasses that hold over 16 ounces
  • Pint or Mixing Glasses are tall tapered glasses that hold 16 to 18 ounces (about a pint)
  • DOF's (Double Old Fashion) and Rocks Glasses are names used for short, wide glasses: DOF's usually hold 10 to 14 ounces while Rocks Glasses tend to be smaller, holding about 8 to 10 ounces.
Our Alibi Plastic Drinkware Collection is a good example of coordinating plastic glasses in the styles and sizes mentioned above:
