The phrasing "into the cup" suggests I should be using the ablative case, but the answer uses "poculum" and not "poculo." What am I missing?

Just the other way round: "into the cup" implies using the accusative, for something happening entirely inside the cup you would use the ablative

in poculo = in the cup in poculum = into the cup
