As regards drinking from a damp glass, how can you drink from a dry one? A drink, of whatever you fancy, is by definition wet. Ergo, if you pour said concoction in to a glass and proceed to drink it, the said glass is no longer dry since it contains (or contained) a liquid, a property of which is being wet.
If you pour neat alcohol into a dry glass, the capillary attraction of alcohol to alcohol is greater than the attraction of alcohol to glass therefore the glass stays dry! Pour it into a wet glass and you catch a cold!
