Sadly, the Summer is drawing to a close but fortunately, I think the weather will be good enough to wangle a few more BBQs before we put away the grill for the Winter. This is good because I find BBQs to be the best social occasions.
You can get the whole family together along with a big group of friends and everyone naturally unwinds from whatever stresses they’ve been feeling. The outdoors, good food and complete lack of formality is a win. However, I keep losing wine glasses to BBQs. At least I did until I discovered these unbreakable silicone wine glasses.
Wines And BBQ
Wherever there is a large volume of cooked meat, there ought to be some wine to go along with it. If you don’t know how to pair wine with the elements of your BBQ, you can learn from Dave Haskell in this brief but entertaining video on How to Pair Wine with BBQ:
So, About Those Glasses?
My biggest concern with the unbreakable silicone wine glasses was that they would somehow change the taste of the wine. Glass gives wine a distinct edge and I wasn’t sure that silicone would do the same.
The taste is, however, unchanged. The texture of the glass is not though. It takes a couple of sips to get used to these glasses but once you do, they’re great. And they are 100% unbreakable under normal usage conditions (no, you can’t run them over with a car or do something really silly to them). So, given their reasonable price tag – check out the unbreakable silicone wine glasses on Amazon now.
