There’s nothing more refreshing than enjoying a nice cold glass of beer, water, soda, juice, tea, or fruit punch. On the flip side, nothing ruins a good cold drink like a warm glass. That’s why we love using our cooling pint glasses. Instead of trying to quickly cool drinks by drowning them in ice cubes and effectively watering down the taste, we use our cooling glasses to get our drinks at the perfect temperature and keep them there for hours.
Cooling pint glasses and mugs work by placing them in a freezer for a limited time. The gel between the insulated walls of the glass quickly cools the mug, providing the perfect vehicle for your drink. No more running out of ice or drinking warm soda. Instead, use a cooling pint glass to enjoy your cold beverage for hours, even in hot temperatures.
We chose three cooling pint glasses that not only keep your drink at the ideal temperature, they’re also durable and comfortable to hold, with two styles including a handle and the last option featuring a comfortable silicone handle. A cold drink is great. A cold hand? Not so much.
Get ready to kick back and relax while enjoying a cold beverage thanks to your new cooling pint.
