What Do You Drink Out of a Larger Tumbler?

Healthier drinks, beverages that generally come in large portions, and/or drinks that usually are served with a good amount of ice, are best suited for tumblers 20 oz and larger, like the flagship Beast Tumbler.

Choosing a larger tumbler is great to stay hydrated if you’re trying to up your water intake, boost your fruit and vegetable intake with smoothies, and stay geeked out on caffeine all day long with hot and iced coffee.

What Do You Drink Out of a Smaller Travel Tumbler?

Drinks that come in smaller portions, don’t call for a lot of ice, and/or aren’t exactly healthy, are best suited for travel tumblers 16 oz and smaller.

Drinking out of a smaller receptacle is a great way to manage your portion control with unhealthy choices like sodas or juices, and is also good to monitor your alcohol intake if you’re drinking on a hot afternoon.

Note that cold brew is best for smaller travel tumblers because it’s served in much smaller portions than iced coffee, and requires no ice.
