This past spring while in Marfa, Texas, I stopped in at the Capri, a new restaurant and event space from the Thunderbird Hotel across the street. We each ordered a high desert cocktail (infused with okra, hibiscus, wild sage) that was served in heavy glassware etched with floral designs.
The glasses are the Condesa Collection from Rose Ann Hall Designs, a company based in San Miguel de Allende that specializes in handmade glassware and church candles. What we liked most was the way the heavy recycled glassware looked with delicate floral etchings. A bonus: The sturdy glass makes these for outdoor dining.
