Beverages feel colder if you drink them from copper vessels. The metal’s temperature immediately drops when someone adds a cool liquid and ice cubes to a mug. Consequently, the drink seems particularly refreshing. Cocktail enthusiasts have recognized this advantage of copper for hundreds of years.
This material doesn’t only create a chilly sensation. It also insulates the beverage from warm air.
