Hit A High Note

I'm always on the lookout for the perfect hostess gift. Whether you're crashing on a couch or sleeping in the guest bedroom, it's always good manners to give something back to one that puts you up. But Not Cot just found me the perfect gift for my wino friends: Musical Wine Glasses.

Sold by Uncommon Goods, the set of two Musical Wine Glasses come with series of gold markings on the side that correspond to the level of liquid. Rather than measuring volume, these glasses measure notes. Fill your cup halfway and then tap it gently with a fork to hear E, or drink down a little further and slide your finger around the rim for A. Neat, huh?

The product description suggests using these glasses to create an alcoholic orchestra at your next dinner party, but I'm more likely to use my desire to hear B Flat as an excuse to fill the vessels to capacity. Bottoms up.

We call it Jaltarang Jal means "water" and tarang music. We had this live music in our wedding where bowls were filled with water alongwith flute and tabla. Something like this video -

Hysterical! I'm a musician as well as an enophile, and just for the record, ALL crystal wine glasses are musical. By filling any of them to different levels one (or a tableful of guests) can plan a variety of tunes if they have that inclination. These glasses that have markings on the side are just making the music making easier.

When I first glanced at this image, I thought these were measured lines, and kind of hated that. But, NOTES? This is really awesome. Dinner parties everywhere are going to get more musical....
