With the taste of spring and summer at the tip of our tongues, we’re dusting off our picnic mats and polishing our cocktail glasses in anticipation.

WATCH: 5 Summer Cocktails For The Entertaining Season

Although spring is already here (technically), one look at the weather app and we realise we *might* be stuck indoors for a while longer while the weather plays catch up.

What better time to start sorting out your spring entertaining heavy rotations? And by that, we mean cocktail glasses. Even though cocktails are enjoyed all year round, there’s something special about a spring evening spent on the patio with a refreshing watermelon cocktail within easy reach.

To help you find your favourite spring cocktail glasses, we’ve curated our top picks that will make your spring dos that much sweeter.
