A trip to the beach just isn’t that fun when you’re constantly knocking over your glass of rosé, which is why we’re so pumped to see that Aldi’s famous Crofton Floating Wine Glasses are currently on sale for less than $2 each. The Crofton has your back, whether you’re enjoying a vodka drink, a La Croix mocktail, or an ice-cold Pinot Grigio. Each glass holds half a bottle of wine, so you won’t have to make too many trips back and forth to the cooler.

This unique wine glass works in two magical ways. If you’re at the beach, you can shove its stem end right into the sand. The balls on the stem help stabilize your glass to prevent messy spills. We all know a traditional wine glass (even a stemless one) is nearly impossible to balance on the uneven beach sand.

If you don’t live near the beach and spend most of your time in the pool, the Crofton is bound to be a hit, too. That’s because it floats in water. The long bubbled stem balances out the cup on top. Rest your glass right in the pool and swim over to it whenever you get thirsty. You probably don’t want to try it out in the ocean due to the waves — trust us when we say that even the best bottle of wine can’t stand up to the overpowering taste of seawater. That being said, the fact that the cup floats will come in handy if you find yourself at the mercy of an incoming tide — in the instance the glass gets swept away, it will bobble in the waves for an easy rescue.

The Crofton floating wine glass comes in turquoise, white, or clear. Mix or match it with your bathing suit, towel, and beach umbrella. At just $2 a piece for a limited time, it’s worth buying a whole set. Pair with some of Trader Joe’s affordable canned wine, and you’ll be the budget-savvy, bargain-shopping star of your group’s next beach party.
