It's common to have lots of potent potables in camp. If you are going to go to the trouble of bringing such things to camp, why drink them out of Dixie Cups? If you enjoy mixing cocktails in camp, serve them to your friends in the best possible light with good presentation. Don't do it in a Dixie Cup. The best cocktail in the world tastes bad out of a Dixie Cup.
The GSI glasses are not camp toys or novelties. These are very usable glasses designed to hold a lot of potent potables. They're pretty to look at and virtually non-breakable. They represent an excellent compromise between ugly Dixie Cups and glassware that is beautiful but heavy, bulky (especially with the requisite padding), and delicate.
While large, all of the GSI glassware store and transport efficiently because they break down to transport much more easily. They also do not require padding to prevent them from breaking.
The Red Wine Glass features a 10 fl. oz. capacity. The latest 79310 Red Wine Glass from GSI has a much more beautiful shape than the previous design had.
The previous design did not have an elegant shape and the the rim did not constrict to the capture the bouquet as well as the new design. The current design is much nicer.
The Red Wine Glass is a two-piece design. The stem threads into female threads in the bottom of the bowl. The stem unthreads from the bowl and nests within the bowl for space-efficient storage and transport. The stem's base is a friction fit with the the bowl's rim so that the stem will remain affixed to the bowl during storage and transport.

Though it's called the Red Wine Glass, it's just as suited for whites as reds.
Though you may fret about the perfect varietal stem for the specific varietal wine when you are in the comfort of the city, in camp you use what you got. The Red Wine Glass really works just as well for whites as it does for reds. In fact, you could do far worse.
And don't limit yourself to wine. The Red Wine Glass also works for margaritas and other cocktails. Photo by Paul von Klosst-Dohna.
The Champagne Flute features a 4 fl. oz. capacity.
Like the Red Wine Glass, the Champagne Flute is a two-piece design.

The Highland Drinking Glass is a snifter intended for brandy. It will also do double-duty for Belgian beers, but the capacity is only 10 oz. The bowl is the same bowl used on the Red Wine Glass, but with a shorter base fitted.
For nesting during storage and transport, the base locks to the rim of the bowl.
The Martini Glass features a 10 fl. oz. capacity.

Need a shaker for your camp cocktails? The Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler was designed as an insulated mug, but it makes a superb shaker.
The Stainless Tumbler will keep ice frozen twice as long as the best plastic tumblers and will also outperform any other steel or titanium tumbler currently on the market. The Stainless Tumbler also has design features that make it a pleasure to use. The flip-top lid seals the tumbler liquid-tight to prevent spills, even when the contents are being shaken. The lid is grooved on the side and the top hole is very close to the edge for easier drinking. The narrow bottom fits a wide variety of different cupholders and the rubber base prevents the tumbler from skidding around on smooth surfaces. This is a great tumbler and it does excellent duty as a camp shaker.
