The minute the sun comes out and the temperature hits 70 degrees, you can bet you'll find us laying by the pool with an ice-cold drink in hand. On warm evenings, we'll be hosting wine-filled, al fresco dinner parties for friends, and on breezy afternoons we'll head to the park for a picnic — complete with refreshments, of course.
The one thing these dreamy summer scenarios have in common? The need for chic outdoor drinkware from which to sip and serve all our desired beverages. Alcoholic or not, thirst-quenching liquids are valuable hot-weather essentials and deserve to be honored by their vessels. Forget the college-reminiscent Solo Cups of yore and invest in portable outdoor drinkware that will make drinking outdoors much more fun.
