A handle for use with a bottle of the type having a flange extending circumferentially around the neck of the bottle typically used, but not limited to, for the marketing of soft drink beverages. The handle comprises three distinct integral por- tions, a first ring-shaped holdeer slips over and around the body of the bottle, a second ring- shaped holder fits over the flange of the bottle when properly positioned and will be secured to the bottom surface of the flange, and the grip- ping portion extending from the first to the second ring-shaped holder. The gripping portion forms an arc for easy grasping due to the pre- ssure that occurs on the resilient substrate from the engagement of both rings and is integral with each ring.
