A perfect milkshake deserves the perfect glass.
Back in the day everybody went to Schrafft's. For decades the New York City-based chain offered home-style food in genteel surroundings to secretaries, errand boys, court clerks and others watchful of their wallets. Movie stars, politicians, even Presidents stopped in.
James Beard admired "the precisely trimmed egg salad sandwiches." A young Jackie Bouvier went there after school with her schoolmates, for ice cream. A newcomer to the city, Helen Gurley Brown knew that "eating at Schrafft's was as New York as climbing to the top of the Empire State Building." Drinks were served in classic-shaped glass containers with metal holders (so ladies wouldn't stain their gloves). These nearly-forgotten glasses, supported by gleaming stainless-steel holders and accompanied by elegant, long-handled spoons, are perfect for milkshakes and ice cream sodas, or hot rum drinks.
Schrafft's Luncheonette-Style Glass with Holder Gift Box Set of 2) are a wonderful addition to your home glassware collection.
