It is a good idea to chill a cocktail glass prior to pouring the cocktail ingredients from the cocktail shaker.  You should be gentle with the glass and never plunge a  cocktail glass directly into ice.  Simply add ice water to the glass and let it chill for a few minutes.  Never chill a cocktail glass that is taken directly from dishwasher and still hot.  The thermal shock can shatter the cocktail glass.
