DIY Life's Diane Rixon recommends first drizzling some vegetable oil or dish soap in between the two drinking glasses and wiggling gently to see if they'll pop apart. If that doesn't work, try a hot and cold one-two punch:
Hot water and ice water. Submerge the bottom glass or bowl in very hot (but not boiling) water. Fill the uppermost glass or bowl with ice water. Presto! The simultaneous expansion and contraction of the layers should unstick even the most stubborn glassware.
