Had too much to drink last night? Don’t blame yourself. Blame the wine glass.
"Researchers say people who hold the glass while they pour and those who pick white wine will drink more. Also, the wider the glass, the more you’ll end up pouring." (Via Bay News 9)
The new study by researchers at Iowa State and Cornell Universities found simply holding your wine glass while you pour leads to a 12 percent larger pour. (Via The Daily Meal)
I knew I was getting a little heavy-handed.
And it’s not just the type of wine or the way you hold your glass, but the glass itself. (Via The Today Show)
An Iowa State researcher told the Pentagon Post, “People have trouble assessing volumes… They tend to focus more on the vertical than the horizontal measures. That’s why people tend to drink less when they drink from a narrow glass, because they think they’re drinking more.”
There you have it. The extra calories, the extra headache, all of it the wine glass’ fault.
