Aluminum Drinking

Is it safe to drink out of vintage aluminum glasses?

Does anyone remember the bright multi-colored aluminum glasses from the 1950s or so? They came in sets of multiple colors. Are they safe to drink out of?

Yes ... I remember them! The US manufacturers were looking for clever things to do with war surplus (the tubular lawn chairs with the woven webbing seats came from that some era).

I've never heard of any issues with these tumblers ... colorful, kept your drink cold, and didn't break easily. As long as they are clean they should be safe.

I have a great set of recipes for 1950s appetizers to go along with your theme ...
