Cantaritos de barro cups are traditional small clay cups that are staples of street fairs in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Cantaritos cups are humble, with a lot of character and history. Their clay material is perfect for maintaining a cocktail’s cold temperature, and the handmade nature evoked memories of generations worth of fun.

Please note: the clay cantaritos cups are traditionally meant to be refilled during the night at street fairs, but are usually treated as disposable. We have finished our cups with a special glaze to reinforce them. With proper care the cups could for some time, but are easily breakable and not dishwasher-safe. These cups are sold in a boxed set of 4 or individually. Each one is handmade on a manual turntable and size may vary. Approximate capacity is 16 oz.
