The Mixology Collection by Waterford is as functional as it is gorgeous, thanks to a collaboration with mixologist Julie Reiner, proprietor of the Brooklyn cocktail bar Clover Club (210 Smith St.; cloverclubny.com). Designed in four distinct styles—Talon (red), Argon (blue), Neon (yellow) and Circon (purple)—the pieces include rocks glasses ($350 for four; $175 a pair) and coups ($350 for four), plus decanters, a water pitcher, shot glasses and an ice bucket. Reiner even formulated a special cocktail, available at Clover Club through autumn, called the Crystal Fall—a perfect way to christen your new glasses. waterford.com.
