Pumpkin Beer Ice Cream Float in my Tervis Tumbler!

It’s been a busy month, October has just flown by literally!  As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I received a Tervis tumbler with the Foodbuzz logo on it in the mail a couple of weeks ago.  The tumbler we got is part of their Smartcup line, which I found out has a lifetime warranty, is microwave and dishwasher proof, has a self warming system for hot drinks and has a technology that prevents condensation rings on your table (no coasters needed!!). 

I put this cup to the test by making a Pumpkin Beer Pumpkin Ice Cream float!!  Earlier in the month I had gone out and had seen this on the menu.  I am a huge fan of both Pumpkin Ale and Pumpkin Ice Cream so I knew I had to try this.  While I didn’t order it while I was out on my date, I kept on thinking about making this for the next couple of weeks.

1 bottle Pumpkin Ale
2 scoops Pumpkin Ice Cream

The float totally held up well in my Tervis tumbler!  Unlike a Coke float, the beer float is enjoyed at a slightly slower pace.  The ice cream did not melt but instead turned into a lovely frosty texture and I had no rings on my coffee table when I was done!  I can’t wait to try out the many uses of my tumbler, next I’ll probably put it to the test to see how it holds up to a hot beverage.  

Have a Happy Halloween everyone!
