A wonderful buyer let me know that she used my wine goblets as margarita glasses and found them to be the perfect size, shape, and, as a bonus, they stay chilled longer. So guess what my husband has waiting for him tonight? My own concoction- Watermelon Jalapeno Margaritas! These are very hot. If you don't want the heat, omit the jalapenos. They are a tasty drink without it. My alligator garnish was made with a cookie cutter I got in New Orleans. Isn't it funny? I just have to put my own twist on things...

the glasses are for sale here
