It’s a cultural things, but not many of us in the United States enjoy peeking anyone drink at room temperature. Steamy hot or ice cold, of course, but once a drink has been left out for too long, it begins to approach the dreaded 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Fortunately, you can fight lukewarm drinks with a double- or three-walled, vacuum-insulated container.
