Drinking From Bottles, Cans, And Brown Paper Bags!
For as long as beverages have been available in disposable containers, etiquette books have advised people not to drink out of cartons, bottles, and cans. The only exception to this rule was the consumption of beer and soda at outdoor picnics or barbecues, where suitable glasses might not be available.
Nowadays, however, you can buy everything from green tea to chocolate soy milk in packages made from glass, plastic, paper, and aluminum – or a variety of combinations. Convenient little juice boxes come with their own plastic straws, and sports drinks come in wide-mouth containers for easy gulping. People even wear water bottles with designer labels, like handbags as they traipse through the mall.
Drinking directly from bottles or cans might be the most convenient option on the tennis court or on the go, but when it comes to serving beverages in your home, drinks should be drunk from a glass, never a can or bottle. And definitely not from the milk carton.
