Ever wondered what a DOF tumbler or glass is, a rocks glass or just an old fashioned? As retailers we use these terms all the time so here is a little lesson for all those want to be cocktail and spirit connoisseurs.
The old fashioned, or rocks, glass is named for the most renowned drink served therein - the Old Fashioned Cocktail. It's easy; it comes in two variants: the old fashioned glass and the double old fashioned (or DOF) glass.
The size merely indicates, roughly, the capacity of the glass. A traditional old fashioned glass holds 6–8 ounces, whereas a double can hold 12–14.
Use an old fashioned glass for drinks built in the glass. What that means is, you're not using a cocktail shaker or mixing glass to build the cocktail; you're mixing it in the same glass in which you're serving it, usually directly on ice.
For example, when you "build" an old fashioned in its namesake glass, you put in your sugar, your bitters, a splash of still water, and a bit of citrus peel. You muddle that until the sugar dissolves and the citrus oils express into the sugary mixture. Add ice and whiskey; stir until cold, blended, and somewhat diluted.
Viola! Now stop reading and go get yourself a decent set of Old Fashioned or even some DOF Glasses and get muddling.
