Should I Pre-Chill the Glass ?

Usually when you are serving a straight up cocktail into a Martini/Coupe Glass such as this one, you would always want to pre-chill the glass because the cocktail’s temperature is vitally important to its taste.

You can simply store the glass in your freezer or fill it with ice and let it sit for a few minutes, then remove the ice & pour the cocktail into it.

In our case we rarely pre chill the glasses when doing our videos, but that is just due to our preferences for the consistency in the glass’s looks rather then the taste.

Do you normally pre-chill your coupe/martini glasses ?
