A drinking straw is commonly used for beverage cans. However, current products have a defect in that the straw is often floating and inclined. This makes the drinker difficult to grasp and use the straw, and even can result in tipping the beverage can over. This straw is designed to fit a single serving of a beverage can. The specific tube structure provides a function to lodge in the opening mechanism, either the pull-tab or the stay-on-tab.
