Red Solo Cup: Use as a Measuring Cup!

Solo Measuring Cup?

Red Solo Cup. These iconic cups are now even more useful than ever. Did you know? Solo cup lines can be used for measuring! Solo measuring cup is handy if you’re baking (or pouring anything) and don’t have a measuring cup handy. For example, imagine you’re camping out and don’t have your kitchen necessities handy.  Grab a Solo cup, and ! Need to measure a shot of rum? Just fill it to the first line to get 1 ounce.  A typical pour of a glass of wine is 5-6 ounces.  And, a regular can of beer or soda is 12 ounces. It makes sense that the Solo Cup company would have put some thought behind their wonderful products, but it’s one of those things most of us take for granted or don’t think about.
