I love Yeti’s Nordic Purple color. Is it because along with their beautiful Navy it matches the theme colors of my website? Well, there is that, but the legendary Yeti performance is what keeps me buying these fantastic tumblers.

Yeti Insulated Vacuum Construction

The double wall stainless steel construction of the Yeti not only keeps your hot drinks hot, it also keeps your cold drinks really cold for a long time. Durable and built to last, I’ve never had a Yeti Rambler fail yet. Dishwasher safe too!

Yeti For Cold Drinks

The Rambler will keep your cold drinks frosty cool for hours. It’s great with the included MagSafe lid for iced coffee, lemonade, iced tea, water, and so much more. One of my favorite summer uses is with a milkshake. The optional straw lid and straw (a shatter proof material) keeps your milkshake or other frozen beverage (Margaritas to go!) at the perfect temperature for extended strolls in the park.

Ice cold beer stays ice cold in a Yeti Rambler. Pre-chill the tumbler first with a few ice cubes and cold tap water. Top it off with the MagSlider lid for extra insulation.

Beat the heat this summer with an old fashioned root beer float. The Yeti Rambler keeps your float icy cold for extended sipping. The Yeti Straw is the perfect size for thick milkshakes and root beer floats.

Root Beer Float Recipe

Vanilla ice cream
Root beer, chilled
Garnish: whipped cream, maraschino cherries.

Place 2 scoops vanilla ice cream in a Yeti Rambler Tumbler. I use the 20 oz tumblers.
Slowly add chilled root beer – it will fizz; the slower you pour the less fizzing you will get.
Garnish with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
Add a straw and enjoy.

Variations on a Root Beer Float

Chocolate ice cream and cola makes a delicious float. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Vanilla ice cream and orange soda makes a creamsicle treat.
Lighten things up using sorbet and a lemon / lime soda.
Make things adult only with a shot of booze. Bourbon works well with a classic root beer float, but try a spiced rum like Kraken for a kick with a kick.

Yeti Straw Lid with Straw

I love this lid! It creates a great lid to add to the insulating qualities of the Yeti. The straw has a ridge at the bottom that prevents it from coming out – no more lost straws. Made on a shatter resistant plastic for ease of mind. The straw is just the right diameter for thick milkshakes and floats too.

If there could be an improvement on Yeti’s straw, this is it. Perfect for sundaes and ice cream floats. The built in spoon at the bottom of the straw allows you to enjoy the ice cream in your ice cream float without needing another utensil.
