June prize: Which flavor of iced tea would you fill this pitcher and glasses with?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on June 3rd, 2015


June 3 - Blog prize

Like we mentioned in Monday’s entry, June is National Iced Tea Month. To celebrate, we’ve turned the Ice Cream Journal into the Iced Tea Journal for one whole month. That also means our usual ice cream prize will be an iced tea prize. This month’s gift to one commenter chosen at random is the pitcher and set of glasses you see above.

The glass pitcher, by Bormioli Rocco (available on Amazon), holds 72 ounces of iced tea, lemonade or whatever drink you’d like to keep cold. But it’s not an ordinary pitcher, because the lid attached to a removable cylinder, which you can fill with ice. The result? You keep your drink cold without watering it down with melting ice cubes!

The set of two glasses are also designed to keep your drinks cold. The glasses (also available on Amazon) are double-walled, meaning there’s a layer of outer glass that your hand touches and a layer of inner glass that holds the iced tea, and both are separated by an insulating layer of air. In other words, your hand won’t warm your drink, the drink won’t cool off your hand, and the glass stays nice and dry (no condensation!).

Leave a comment below with which flavor of iced tea you’d fill this pitcher with and we’ll choose one comment at random to win the pitcher AND the glasses. We’ll also throw in some free iced tea to help get the rest and relaxation started!
