A Margarita is a cocktail that’s synonymous with fun. Sip the zesty tipple and good times are almost certain to ensue, especially if you’re drinking from a classic Margarita glass.

Like the cocktail itself—traditionally made with tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and agave—the cup is rather simple, but will bring a smile to your face without fail. Its origins are somewhat of a mystery, but one legend has it that a bartender in Los Angeles started using them after receiving the wrong type of Champagne glass.

Shaped like a vintage Champagne coupe that’s gone awry, the Margarita glass has a wide mouth that cascades to a V-shaped bowl and a delicate stem. They’re are available in a spate of different sizes, shapes and materials, depending on what kind of sipping experience you’re seeking.

Here, we’ve pulled together the best Margarita glasses that run the gamut, from handmade designs to the finest crystal.
