Bartender's Simple Tip: Cool Warm Glasses

Bartender's Simple Tip: Cool Warm Glasses

In a bar, glasses and dishes are constantly being washed. A bartender will often make a cold cocktail, but find that the only clean glasses are those hot from the dishwasher. Instead of panicking, there is an effortless trick that most bartenders use — and I do at home — hold the hot glass under cold running water. The cold water will quickly change the temperature of the glass. Once the glass has cooled in your hands, dry, and pour your cocktail.

I like putting mugs/ glasses in the freezer. There's nothing better than a frosty beer!

I often do this if I'm taking a glass straight from the dishwasher. Usually I drink tap water but I'll make sure to rinse the glass first to cool it down.

You have to be careful with this method though b/c if the glass is too hot and you run it under too cold of water, it could shatter in your hand.
