Highball glass

A highball glass is a glass tumbler that can contain 240 to 350 millilitres (8 to 12 US fl oz).[1][2] It is used to serve highball cocktails and other mixed drinks. An example size is 2 34 in (7 cm) diameter by 6 in (15 cm) in height.[3]

A highball glass is taller than an Old Fashioned glass (lowball), and shorter and wider than a Collins glass.
