There's nothing better on a hot summer day than a glass of lemonade or iced tea — or even better, an arnold palmer! If you're having friends over or are planning a long day outside, there's no better way to serve icy cold drinks than with a beverage dispenser. Here are a few of our favorites, after the jump.Beverages are great alternatives to pitchers when you want to keep bugs out, and avoid any nasty spills. When purchasing a beverage jar, look for one that comes with a stand, or whose spigot is raised several inches above the base so that you don't need to place the jar right on the edge of the table.
