A Copa de Balon is a type of glass that is perfect for drinking gin and tonics. The glass is typically bulbous in shape, like a balloon, and sits on a stem almost like a red wine glass. The Copa de Balon glass dates back to the 1700s in the Basque region of northern Spain. While the English would use a long Tom Collins glass, the Spanish – who are said to be the largest drinkers of gin in Europe – developed the ‘balloon cup’ instead. The glassware became popular over in the states during the prohibition era and is now starting to become more widely used in gin bars in London.
The Copa de Balon is designed to trap the aromas of the gin to give a better taste to the drink, but the large bowl also allows plenty of ice and lime into the glass to add to the flavour and keep the drink cool.
