Welcome back for another Mason Jar Monday! Today I am featuring another gadget to turn your jar into a fun drinking glass for the summer. I know I've featured some others in the past, but I am particular excited about these Sip & Straw Lids because they're put out by Ball®. You can find these lids and straws just about anywhere Ball® jars are sold. They come in both wide and narrow mouth.
I am not sure how long this little collection has been in stores, but I discovered my lids and straws at a Hardware store in Shipshewanna, Indiana. I picked them up for around $5 for 4 lids and 4 straws. Once I found them, I started seeing them everyone! Friends were sending me pictures as they came across them.
I decided to pair my lids with green quart size jars from Ball®'s Heritage Collection. Since the straws are green and our deck furniture is green, I thought these jars would be perfect for some summer sipping on my deck!
I know we can easily turn a mason jar into a glass without special lids or fun straws, but these lids make it so much easier for traveling and keeping bugs away from our drinks.
The downside to using these jars as a traveling sipper is that they do sweat and unfortunately, the quart size doesn't fit in a cup-holder in the car. However, you could take a long a smaller size if you were traveling!
There's just something about an ice cold beverage, a mason jar and summer. It's a small reminder of our roots, our lifestyle, working hard so we can play even harder.
Sit back, relax and enjoy this summer with some of these Sip & Straw Lids by Ball®!
What's your favorite way to enjoy a nice cold beverage in the summer?
