"Dipper Swill" could be a new drink at the Hotel Murano.

Doubt they'd want to call it that. I'm sure they could think of something more complimentary tho. It'd be cool if they could have glasses made in a similar shape.

I feel like the tall side would get slightly in the way of beverage consumption.

I do feel that all soup ladles used in the restaurant should be shaped like that, though.

How about "Gritty Dipper Slurry."

man you just had to throw the 'gritty' upthere...

As disparaging of modifier "slurry" is, gritty is 10 times worse. I can handle a drink that it is a "slurry." But most would pass on the "gritty" drink. (Did someone forget to wash the dishes?)

Made with real sand!

It fits the theme! Sand is gritty, and sand can be melted into glass!

Yes. And it makes such a difference whether the dirt/sand is melted or not.

Example #1: This is great beer/martini glass

Example #2: There's dirt in my drink
