My dear patrons,
Here are 10 words that you may need to celebrate New Year properly with your loved ones, particularly, if your loved ones speak Russian.
- бокал is a glass for red or white wine.
- фужер is a bit more specific: it is a tall wine glass. Like flutes for champagne.
Wine is usually kept in bottles - бутылка.
But you may want to serve it in графин, decanter, or even a кувшин, jug.
And, of course, before wine gets into bottles, it is made and stored in бочка, barrel.
What about strong liqueur?
Водка should be served in стопка, a shot glass.
Another name for a shot glass is рюмка. Usually, рюмка is a bit more elegant:
Unless you want to drink a lot of it. If you are determined to get drunk, use стакан for drinking it.
And beer? In my opinion, tankard, кружка, is the best!
I hope, this little vocabulary set has put you in a festive mood!
