A wide range of insulated beverage carriers are available. They will keep your hot beverages hot and your cold drinks cold for several hours. When choosing a beverage carrier, the most important things to consider are size, color and design. Make sure your carrier has comfortable handles that will make it easy to carry, and be sure that it has a large enough capacity for your needs. If you will be serving coffee or tea, you might look for a carrier that has a built-in coffee station organizer. Also consider the color; colors that match typical catering events are best, while a neutral color can work for all types of events. When cleaning your beverage carrier, pay extra attention to the spigot as it is the place most likely to harbor mold or bacteria. Be sure to thoroughly wash the area surrounding the spigot both inside and out. Also, fill the container with warm soapy water and flush some through the spigot to assure the inside is cleaned and sanitized.
