Made a bit more, added more things to play around with other type of materials. Not focused on lighting so far. I also see that my glass shaders aren't the best. Things are definitely off, maybe I made them too thick (most likely) but also I need to blend them a bit with the liquid inside the glasses.
There's not much to be told what I did as i basically did the same on thing, added a VRay Mtl and instead of making it use refraction I made it solid of course.
I do not have the best setup of light so things look a bit bland.

These are just VRay Mtl materials slapped onto two glass models in Autodesk Maya (shouldn't matter which software you use though as these are VRay specific). I changed the transparency to full and the amount too. The glossiness is on 1 (which means clean glass), Refraction IOR is 1.6 for the glass as it is standard for glass surfaces. On the glass to the left I added a slight blue Fog Color. The one to the right has completely white color. I get a few problem areas mainly at the top and at the sides of the glass.
I'm gonna play around with the Fresnel a little (now currently locked to the Refraction IOR). The very tip of the glasses gets really black, could be because of the background but I better check my settings and the amount of Refraction and Reflection subdivs (currently 10 which should be more than I need actually, 4 or 5 would suffice I believe at the current setup.)
I have a very simple rectangular light just above. No settings changed there. I will prob later.
