Spinoff: type of drinkware

What determines the shape and type of the glasses and drinkware you normally use? I know for wine and liquor, you use different shapes for different drinks bc supposed the different shapes enhance the aroma and heighten gustatory sensation.

But for nonalcoholic drinks, how many different varieties do you have and what determines which you will reach for at any given time?

I love the look of a stemless whiskey-type glass, esp if the glass is smoked. Does anyone drink nonalcoholoc drinks from glasses like this? Do they enhance the experience at all?

    My last set were like that, but the tall ones were a PITA to clean. I looked for something with a wider top this time.
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    I drink out of jars most of the time.Yes, I'm country.

    Occasionally, I'll use stemless wine glasses for water. It looks really pretty with crushed ice.

    I also like juice glasses from the 40s and 50s. Ones with a heavier bottom.

    Does anyone drink coffee at home from a demure little teacup or drink tea from an oversized coffee mug w/ a witty slogans on it?

    If you make espresso at home, do you drink it from a demitasse cup?

    If you make blended latte drinks or fruit or green smooties, what do you drink them from?

    I have a set of these:

    I use the smallest ones for shots of espresso. The next size up for juice and short cocktails. The next one for lattes and long cocktails. The biggest one for smoothies.

    I also have a lot of pint glasses that I also use for cocktails.

    Whoops, I should've included that information! They're the Duralex Picardie tumblers. I got them from Williams Sonoma.

    Thanks!
    Do the glasses feel substantial in your hand? I like my glasses to have some weight to them.
