What is a Mason Jar?

Mason jars can serve a lot of functions when it comes to cocktails, like holding syrups and making infused spirits, but they’ve also become popular as serving glasses in their own right. Typically, they’re used to serve highballs and other long drinks, usually with a lot of mixer involved, but you can technically use one for just about anything. Start with drinks typically served in a Highball glass or Collins glass and go from there.

The main benefit to using a Mason jar (aside from hipster street cred) is its portability. Want to bring a cocktail to your friend’s party, but don’t trust them to make it right? Just screw that lid on tight and throw it in your bag!
