At Wares of Knutsford we are proud of the quality and variety of our jar range, and are particularly excited about some of our more unusual items. Have you ever considered Mason mugs for drinking? Not only do jar mugs offer a cute and stylish way of presenting drinks, they are also practical.
The Mason jar mugs range at Wares of Knutsford
Made of heavyweight glass with a chunky handle, Mason jar mugs are ideal for outdoor events at home or away – barbecues, picnics, parties, festivals etc. They are certainly more sophisticated than a paper cup and more modern than a hip flask. The lids mean they can safely transport drinks and are great for pre-filling drinks for guests at outdoor events. The lid prevents not only spillages but insects and debris from entering the glass, however the handled jars are not suitable for hot drinks or for preserving.
The range includes options with or without lids in a variety of sizes. Mason drinking jars come in 450ml and 630ml sizes in clear glass, with lids in a choice of gold or red and white gingham. Alternatively Kilner makes drinking mugs in clear glass in 500ml or in a choice of blue, green or pink in 400ml, embossed with the famous Kilner logo.
There is a choice of pack sizes, with items getting cheaper the more you order, so take advantage of economies of scale and buy in bulk to save money! As usual at Wares of Knutsford, all orders are subject to a flat postage rate, no matter how many items are in your online basket.
Don’t forget to order some paper straws to go with your drinking mugs for some classic styling!
A summer cocktail for Mason jar mugs
The glorious pastel colour of this mint lemonade will look super pretty served in Mason jar mugs with a straw, plenty of ice and extra lemon and mint to garnish – serious non-alcoholic cocktail style without a paper umbrella in sight!
You will need:
- A large handful of fresh mint leaves
- The juice of six lemons and the zest of three
- Three tablespoons sugar cane syrup
- Still or sparkling water
Wrap the mint leaves in a clean tea towel and bash gently with a rolling pin – bruising the leaves will help to release the flavour. Add the mint with the lemon juice and zest and the sugar syrup to a pitcher, then top up with the water. Stir well then sample the lemonade and add a bit more lemon or sugar according to taste.
Chill thoroughly and add plenty of ice to serve.
