We love this DIY tip for spring and summertime cocktail parties.
Rather than spending the money on a private bartender and throwing dozens of disposable cups in the trash, try pre-making your favorite cocktails in mason jars for a fun serve-yourself bar thats friendly to both your wallet and the environment. Mason jars are easy to find and are fairly cheap (you can usually find a dozen for around $10 or less). Picking a few specialty drinks is a fun way to set the tone of your event and make it your own. Label the cocktails with a simple piece of tape on the lid or mix the party up by decorating the jars in pairs and have your guests search for their jar's mate! Any way you play it, keep your drinks as cool as you are by keeping them on ice while you enjoy these warm months!
