Wood for goblets

JL work
>Any recommendations for which wood to be used for a goblet? I have turned small ones out of hard maple. I am planning on turning a larger one (3-4" in diameter) that would get occasionally used. Oak is obviously out as the large pores would act like minature straws. I was figuring hard maple - any other suggestions?
