As much as we love our guests, sometimes it drives us crazy when they place their drinks anywhere but on the coaster we provide. Not that I’m naming names, Sarah. Even worse , if the drink is chilled, the glass inevitably leaves a horrid ring of condensation on the table.

The bottom of this drinking glass is raised and shaped to sit snugly around its mountain-shaped coaster. Your guests wouldn’t be able to resist playing matching games with their glasses.
