Mason Jar Cocktails!

Fill your cooler with these cocktails in a jar!  Great for tailgating at the game or for your Superbowl party :)  No more mixing and measuring cocktails for guests, these drinks are ready for guests to grab so you can enjoy the party too!  


You'll Need

  • Mason jars with lids
  • Your favorite cocktail
  • A bucket or cooler with ice
Here's a great recipe for a Beer Margarita!  Sure to please the gals and gents :)

Makes (6) 1 cup servings
1 (12oz) can frozen limeade concentrate
12 oz tequila
12 oz water
12 oz beer

Mix all ingredients together. Add 1 slice of lime into each mason jar and fill with 1 cup of mixture.  Place over ice to chill.



  1. Love this idea! Don;t know why I did not think of doing this. I got married last summer and have lots of mason jars. I will defiantly be making some Beer Margaritas this summer!!

    1. Totally random. Do you still have your mason jars!?

  2. Perfect for a summer BBQ! Glad you like the idea :)

  3. Very cool idea! I'll just have to plan some event, so I can make these.

  4. I love mason jars for berry lemonade! Adding frozen berries totally keeps the drink cold :)

  5. Do you have any other drink recipes? Great idea!

  6. Thanks:) Check out our "cocktails" tab for more drink recipes!

  7. Love this idea! And the beer margaritas sound great! We will need to use this for our next seasonal party coming up this summer!

  8. Brilliant! Love it! Combines two of my favorite things: cocktails and canning jars. This would require a lot of jars, but better than recyclable, they are reusable plus Ball jars are made in the USA so ya gotta feel good about that!

    Thanks for the great idea! I can't wait to try these next week!

  10. Awesome idea for large group gatherings (such as tailgating). Also, I can utilize this cool serving method:

  11. Wall Mart sells plastic canning jars.

  12. How far in advance can you make and can the drinks? How long will they last if unopened? Just a rough estimate is good.
