The days are growing shorter, and there is a chill in the air, but there are also days you can still enjoy a drink on a patio somewhere, especially here in Colorado, thanks to the 300+ days of sunshine we enjoy! If you’ve shopped our site, you know we’ve got a great selection of accessories to help you fill your Mason Jar with lots of yummy concoctions.
Mason Jar Lifestyle cocktail shaker lids are a must for any bar! Their rustic relaxed charm fits in with any decor, and any regular mouth Mason Jar can become a shaker with these babies….boom! It’s so much fun to take these out and use them on a camping trip, picnic, tailgating, concerts in the park…did I mention TAILGATING? It is that season, and not everyone likes to drink beer, so why not bust out the Mason Jars and Mason Jar shaker – perfect for cocktails and mocktails, alike! Below, we’ve included a couple fabulous drinks to step up your tailgating game – and if you want more ideas (125, to be exact), we highly recommend The Mason Jar Cocktail Companion! And don’t forget to checkout our giveaway at the bottom of the post!

Mason Jar items you’ll need:
Mason Jar (regular mouth/size of your choice), Mason Jar Shaker Lid, wide mouth pint Mason Jar, or whatever size you have! Stainless Steel or Glass Straws by Mason Jar Lifestyle.
2 ounces of your favorite 100% Agave Silver Tequila (sorry no recommendations on tequila, long story…)
1 ounce Cointreau liqueur
2 limes juiced
Combine all ingredients in your Mason Jar Lifestyle Shaker, and shake! Pour in the Mason Jar of your choice with a salted rim, or pop a lid on these bad boys, put them in your cooler, and you are ready to next level tailgate!
The cocktail (and mocktail!) ideas are endless, and you can always pop a lid on all of these recipes to take them on the go. I love making cocktails ahead of time for camping trips. They travel well and everyone is always impressed by the presentation (of course, be sure you’re following the law in your area – in most states, this means you will need to travel with your concoction in your trunk or, if you don’t have a trunk, out of reach of anyone in the vehicle – but be sure to check for yourself!). These are also great for tailgating, but always remember to enjoy responsibly! There are so many fun options, and we would love to hear all of your ideas, as well! Get in the running to win a cocktail gift box by entering through our Rafflecopter below, where you’ll find all the specifics. The winner will get an awesome cocktail gift box that includes a cocktail shaker lid, Mason jar, stainless steel straw, and a fun Mason jar cocktail book! Winner will be announced on November 7th, 2016. Can’t wait to see all your pictures!
