Everything you could possibly need for drinks in the sun!

 

In this weather, you'd be well advised to drink plenty of fluids (alcoholic or not, its up to you), relax and enjoy it while it lasts.

 

To that end, we've found some great gadgets so that you have the perfect drink to enjoy while you bask in the sun.

 

You'll be in need of some light, portable, insulated cups, whatever you are drinking. How about these portable wine glasses from Firebox

 

The Glam Camping Company 4L drinks cooler

£14.99 from Firebox

 

 

Or some funky ice trays from Ikea. These are flexible, to make it easy to get the ice cubes out, lightweight and in fun shapes. Perfect for making ice for some refreshing lemonade!

Grab this wine bottle cooler sleeve from the freezer to keep your bottle cool while you sit back and relax under your awning. It is lightweight and easy to pack, you could even just leave it in your freezer for when you are touring.

To me, warm summer days ask for fresh lemonade and lots of it. You could try Firefox's homemade lemonade kit, complete with retro bottles, or a packet mix or even whiz up your own from scratch. You could serve it in cute paper cups with funky straws, or in a fun jug, like this one from Sainsbury's which we used on our recent trip to France and Spain.

Sainsburys Summer Sundae Pitcher £5

 

Don't forget the fun straws! PartyPieces has colourful wiggly straws which are always fun, as well as pretty paper straws in various patterns, at very competetive prices.

 

Keeping your drinks cool in this heat is a challenge, but the Glam Camping Company have stepped up with a bright, stylish solution or two. Great for both drinks and snacks, the funky cooler bags have a carry handle and an outside pocket, plus plenty of space for sandwiches, fruit and other picnic essentials.

They also have this handy drinks urn, which holds 4L of your favourite refreshing drink. Iced tea, anyone? Keeping drinks cool while looking good is no easy task. But this drinks cooler does it with style! The carry handle and three legs make it portable and stable.
