Coupe: Coup ou Coucou? (I think it's pretty, I believe it is old, but was it for absinthe?) in Gadgets & Gizmos Posted March 17, 2008 · Report reply Hmmm... It looks a lot like a strange mutation of a "coupe" absinthe glass and a champagne coupe. My first impression was that the coupe itself would've been deeper and larger for this to fit in the absinthe coupe category. But then, the "dose" doesn't fit the style of an ordinary champagne coupe either... I'd throw it away.
