Wine, water, soda and all sorts of liquids find their home in a bottle. This glass object makes for a versatile container. It is fascinating to think that there are artisans who put sailing ships inside a bottle, as well.
These days when we say “bottle,” we might refer to one made not of blown glass but from plastic, which is far more common than the glass variety. It makes sense that this is so, since plastic won’t shatter when dropped from the ledge in your refrigerator. I contend that most drinks taste better when sipped from glass, however; if you have a plastic bottle of seltzer, enjoy it by pouring it into a delicate and tall glass.
