In addition to your chic bikini and sandal finds, part of your essential beach gear should include a koozie for your drink! There is actually some sound science behind using drink koozies for the beach. Koozies are essential for keeping your drink cooler for longer on a warm day. Here are a few of the best ideas to use for your next drink koozie.
Sleeves are really easy, but don’t get them mixed up with other koozie varieties. Sleeves slip over your can or bottle easily and require no extra work. You can find many in the perfect size for cans and mugs. If you get the washable kind, they are also easy to clean up even if you get sand and mud smeared across them.
This variety is most readily available for bottles thanks to the wide bodies and long necks. Zip-up koozies allow you to easily secure your drink for maximum insulation against the heat. They also act as extra protection for glass bottles – if you drop them, they are not as likely to shatter.
Choose brightly colored koozies to more easily identify your drink from a distance. This is a great way to personalize your drink and mark it as yours, making sure no one takes it. You might be able to customize one or simply purchase one with spectacular coloring that appeals to you.
Want to add even more flair to your drink koozie? Get a “drink cozy” with an inspirational saying on it. There are many different ones to choose from, or come up with your own saying to decorate a plain one.
If you’ve got the fingers for it or a friend with the know-how, then trying crocheting a unique koozie. Let your imagination go wild and make something that looks like it’s devouring your drink. Go cute with something like a bunny or a kitten. It’s really up to you and your skills. You can add it to your crocheted mermaid tail leg koozie to complete your beach-going look.
Drink koozies are effective accessories for keeping any drink cool while you spend a sunny day at the beach. Go crazy with creativity and set your drink apart from the rest.
