Glassware & Guzzle Rate! Trying to keep your alcohol intake under control this holiday season? You may want to consider using different glassware. That’s right – there is growing evidence to suggest that glass shape may influence the rate of drinking of alcoholic beverages. Studies have shown that drinking beer from a curved glass increases the chances of drinking faster and, ultimately, more. This is likely because it’s harder to determine the mid-point marking in a curved glass, according to researchers. The study found that drinking out of a straight-edged glass instead slowed consumption by about 60 percent. For more tips on healthy holiday drinking, head to page 174.
