5 great ways to keep your drinks cold this summer
Who wants to sip a lukewarm beer?
1. Cooper Cooler ($60)
"Nobody deserves warm beer. Especially not you," says Wired. When you're in a hurry, add water and two trays of ice to the Cooper Cooler, place a can or bottle of beer inside, and let it rip. A beer or soda can chill in a minute, a wine bottle in six. Buy it at Amazon.
2. SpinChill ($35)
Like the Cooper Cooler, this battery-powered, drill-like gadget spins each bottle or can to speed chilling. Again, a can needs only one minute. Just submerge it in ice then start spinning. "And don't worry: When the can is opened, there are no explosions," says CNET. Buy it at Amazon.
3. Final Touch Collapsible Beverage Bin ($47)
If you prefer to chill beers and sodas the old-fashioned way, put them on ice in this sturdy silicone bucket. When the party is over, the bin collapses down to less than 2 inches tall. Buy it at Amazon.
4. Thermos Can Insulator ($10)
When tested alongside five other top-rated koozies, the vacuum-insulated Thermos emerged "the undisputed champion," said Popular Mechanics. It combines excellent insulation with a slender build that fits into most cup holders. Buy it at Amazon.
5. Miir's 64-Ounce Growler ($55)
Don't bother with glass growlers. Miir's insulated jug made of double-walled stainless steel will keep a half gallon of your favorite craft IPA cold for more than 24 hours — "or a very long day at the beach," said Esquire. Buy it at Amazon.
