Beyond Water, What is a Tumbler Used For?

Staying hydrated throughout the day is always important. Drinking plenty of water keeps your body at a normal temperature, helps you better digest waste, and improves all of the other functions of the body. That’s why we recommend carrying around a tumbler, no matter where you’re headed. 

But a tumbler cup is used for more liquids than just water. There are certain drinks you can put in a tumbler, and there are some that can wear down the integrity of an insulated mug. Let’s take a closer look at the dos and don’ts of using tumblers. 

What Drinks Can You Put in a Tumbler?

If you’re wondering if you can put hot drinks in a tumbler, the answer is yes! Tumblers are designed to sustain drink temperatures, whether hot or cold. Beyond water, here are a few examples of cold beverages that you can carry around in your tumbler:

  • Fruit-infused water
  • Iced coffee
  • Iced tea
  • Fruit juice
  • Wine
  • Cocktails (without carbonation)

You can use tumblers for more than cold beverages. Some hot options include:

  • Coffee
  • Hot chocolate
  • Hot tea
  • Mulled wine or warm cocktails

You may consider your tumbler an accessory that follows you throughout the day, but it can also be used for lunchtime! Here are some examples of cold and hot foods you might add to a tumbler:

  • Smoothies
  • Protein shakes
  • Milkshakes
  • Soup
  • Stew
  • Pasta
  • Rice

What Liquids Cannot Go in a Tumbler?

When it comes to liquids that don’t belong in a tumbler, the most important one to remember is carbonated beverages. If you’re wondering why you can’t put carbonated drinks in a tumbler, it’s because travel mugs aren’t designed to withstand the pressure of carbon dioxide, and the acidity can increase the wear and tear of the metal lining

Carbonated beverages left in a sealed container can build up pressure over time, which can ultimately lead to the cap of your tumbler being difficult to remove, or maybe even popping off on its own. While it’s rare for this to happen, we recommend keeping the carbonated drinks away from your tumbler to be safe and avoid the unnecessary surprise.
