I love wine and I love it cold. Very, very cold. But I also love drinking wine outdoors. Therein lies my dilemma: When the weather gets hot, drinks inevitably become lukewarm — and, to me, just plain yucky.
Enter the Hydro Flask insulated tumbler. From a purely aesthetic point of view, these little cups are adorable and colorful.
They’re also sturdy and keep your libations very, very icy, be it a margarita or a pinot grigio.

It comes in a variety of summery colors. It’s made of food-grade stainless steel that keeps your wine cold and your Irish coffee hot. It’s non-slip and sturdy, and has a very cool spill-resistant lid.
Is it worth it?
Yes. If you enjoy a nice drink to wind down at sunset while sitting by the lake or the pool with friends, it's absolutely worth it.
It’s especially worthwhile if, like me, you have kids who tend to run around, knock things over and break anything that’s remotely breakable. The one surefire way to ruin a cookout? Chunks of broken glass.
Here are some other good ones we tried:

Also available for $20 at Walmart.
Another TODAY editor swears by the swig wine cup to keep both sparkling water and Vinho Verde cool out in the sun next to the pool. After two or three hours, there's usually still ice in it. It's amazing.
