Sip on This – Select Insulated Drinkware Roundup

Make cold coffee and water downed drinks a thing of the past by upgrading your drink container game to a version that is insulated. With insulated drinkware you will avoid that condensation that occurs with cold drinks, keep ice from melting so quickly and retain the heat in those hot drinks longer. If you are not sure what kind of insulated vessel might work best, I gathered together and tested out a hand full of options and chose six that stood out as top performers.
