If you’re planning BBQs and parties for this summer, take a look at Wares of Knutsford’s glass drinking jars selection, a funky way of serving drinks at events. Handled jars are a great modern version of the old fashioned hip flask and are useful for picnics and days out as well as garden parties.
Handled jars offer a more creative and interesting way of serving iced drinks, cocktails, milkshakes, iced coffee, cider or beer. With a chunky handle, they are safe for children to use and the lid means you can stage a stylish picnic instead of using paper cups!
Try a delicious Pimm’s punch – you’ll need a bottle of dry cider, 250ml of Pimm’s and a few handfuls of fruit (a mix of lemons, oranges, apples, strawberries for example). Fill the jars to about three quarters full with cider, add the fruit and a straw, then pour the Pimm’s on top so it creates a separate layer of colour.
Wares of Knutsford is also pleased to be able to offer such an economical price for such a funky product – prices start at £10.50 for a pack of six!
