Product Description

This clear British glass tumbler was used from the 17th century, all through the 18th century, and even into the early 19th century.  Used for cold drinks -- beer, ale, shrubs, etc. -- as well as for flip.

Flip, a drink popular from the 17th century onward, used various ingredients and proportions of ingredients.  For one sample colonial flip drink follow this link:  https://drinks.seriouseats.com/2014/04/colonial-era-drinks-cocktails-rum-flip-stonefence-syllabub-rattleskull.html

Recipes for historical fruit shrubs, some alcoholic and some not, can be found here:  http://atasteofhistorywithjoycewhite.blogspot.com/2016/08/shrubs-in-history-and-recipe-for.html

5 1/2" tall, 16 ounce capacity.

This is a new handblown replica of old glass, not an antique.

Handblown in the US.

Glass is not intended for very hot liquids so if you heat your flip in batches, only heat it to a warm temperature before pouring it into the glass.  If you heat flip individually in the glass there is less concern because glass and contents are slowly heating up together; just make sure not to touch the actual glass with the heated flip rod.

Hand wash only, with warm soapy water.

(And if you need a flip rod, contact blacksmith Jerry Darnell at Mill Creek Forge.  He made mine!)
