8 Mason Jar Cocktails to Try

It’s official: Mason jars have taken over the world of entertaining. No more are these glass jars simply for storing. Use them for making single serve desserts, creating unique homemade gifts, and of course our favorite, mixing up some tasty cocktails.

If you’re planning a retreat away from home, or planning on entertaining a large number of guests, you may want to consider getting the drinks out of the way and off your mind. Prep the night before and pour your cocktail into an air-tight glass jar for a fresh and portable drink option. Now you have your drinks ready to go and already split up into single servings!


  • This gardeners tonic cocktail is light in both color and flavor. The combination of gin and citrus makes for a fresh and easy drink – perfect for sipping on poolside or at your summer BBQ.

  • While Pimms is a traditionally British drink, we believe it’s light and crisp flavor deserves a whole lot more attention over here in the states. Add a few fresh fruits and berries to the mix and you’ve got one irresistible cocktail.

  • While we usually drink beer by the bottle, this raspberry beer cocktail has us strongly considering abandoning the tall bottles and dumping our beer into a mason jar to this sweet sip.

  • Before you jump to conclusions, the only green herb involved in this purple haze cocktail recipe is the green tea leaves dipped for flavor. Combine with a burst of pomegranate and vodka and we guarantee you’ll be reaching for seconds.

  • Something about seeing fresh berries and herbs floating around your drink makes it really feel like summertime. This picnic cocktail is perfect for relaxing on a blanket with your sweetie by your side.

  • If your go-to drink is a gin and tonic, it’s time to step out of that alcohol comfort zone and try more creative ways to sip on that gin. This muddled blueberry gin cocktail is a great choice for a tasty drink that is both simple and sweet.

  • I cannot believe we’ve never tried spiking our cocktails with jam. First on our list is to mix up this Madam Geneva’s Jam Cocktail recipe, and then have some fun with our own jam concoctions!

  • We love margaritas. And pomegranates. And of course, slushies. So we’re thinking this pom-a-rita slushie is a triple threat we need to be sipping on come happy hour.
