We held a vote between two potential Romanian crystal martini glasses last week. And "Glass B" won the most votes, so we're launching it first. In fact, Glass B from this point forward shall forevermore be called "Crystal Fire."
It's a fine choice and the winner of the free glass is posted below. But first, a little about this martini glass.
The Crystal Fire will light up any evening and any conversation with that burst of orange flame-like color that runs up and down the stem. That burst is not paint, but a colored glass bubble that is skillfully elongated throughout and within the stem by artisans when the glass is blown.
Your arguments are in.
As part of our voting, I asked people to post why they were voting the way they were. I would then choose my favorite post and award a free glass.
Here were three of my favorites (note that "Glass B" refers to the Crystal Fire before we named it):
"Glass B exudes simplicity, elegance, style and serenity." - Jeannine Coronna
"Of all the glasses I have seen
There’s one that I like best;
It proudly bears an orange stem
Unlike those of the rest.
I favor this large Tini Grail
Whose bowl is crystal clear.
I’ll fill it with my favorite drink
As soon as Friday’s here." - Dave S.
"I vote for B! I love the simple elegance and the fact that I can see the drink that I’m enjoying out of such a beautiful glass. Lots of pressure to make a drink that measures up to the elegance :)" - Amy Desimone
But one post rose above the rest and is, therefore, the winning post:
"There once was a man from Nantucket
Who drank his martinis in buckets.
But he won a glass grail
As big as a whale,
And as for the bucket, he chucked it." - Woody Kay
Nice play on the size of the Crystal Fire, Mr. Kay, holding a whopping 12 ounces! Your new Crystal Fire is on its way to your doorstep.
Thanks to everyone else for playing. Be sure to stay tuned as we'll have more contests and free glasses coming soon.
Keep on grailin'!
