The KeepCup LongPlay, RRP $34, is the perfect container for the job, as it has a twin-walled design that keeps drinks warm and offers protection for your hands against the heat.

It’s great in sunnier climates too as it works the same way with cool beverages, meaning you can sling a refreshing ice tea (or wine, who are we to judge) and off you go.
