A cocktail is a drink made from several ingredients that may or may not contain alcohol. Serving an aperitif in bars in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities of the world may differ in some details, but there are certain unspoken rules for registration. The recipe and decorative elements can be individual, but glasses and glasses have a purpose. For example, it is not customary to serve whiskey in a vodka glass. Dishes for the bar have a large assortment, which will not be easy for a beginner to understand. The main types of glasses and glasses include:
