And while cocoa , warm spiced wine and rum toddies may be deemed essential to help us survive winter, summer also has a list of traditional pick-me-ups to help us cope with the weight of perfect sunny afternoons and sultry evenings: cold beers at the cottage, gin and tonics and Pimm’s Cups for the garden parties, mint juleps for the back porch and pitchers of sangria to share with friends on shady patios. Conservatives, stand up and be counted! You live and breathe the essence of conservative values every day, and you are proud to show it. Whether you are at work or on the road, show the world that you are a true patriot. And there is no better way to live the patriot’s life than having your very own conservative party tumbler! Americans prefer customized mugs and tumblers to spread a message or express themselves. Nothing beats waking up to a steaming cup of coffee in your favorite mug- the patriot’s coffee mug! You can have anything printed on a conservative mug or tumbler; a special message, a photo of your favorite leader, the American flag, anything!
