DIY Summer Drinks in Glass Jars

Posted by Simon M on

Summer's here, and with it comes the glorious sunshine. While you’re making the most of the season, ditch the shop bought fizzy drinks. This year, why not embrace the season with refreshing, homemade summer drinks served in our stylish glass jars from here at Glass Jars and Bottles?

Glass jars are the perfect vessel for summer beverages. They're not just practical, but also add a touch of rustic charm to any picnic, barbecue, or gathering. Fill them with colourful fruits, fragrant herbs, and vibrant blooms for an Instagram worthy presentation. There’s a range of ways to personalise your own summer drink:

Fruity Infusions
These are a fantastic way to add a natural sweetness and a burst of flavour to water. Simply slice your favourite fruits, such as strawberries, lemons, limes, oranges, or even watermelon, and muddle them gently in the bottom of the jar. Top with water, a sprig of mint, and let it infuse in the fridge for a few hours. For a touch more sweetness, add a dash of agave nectar or honey.

Sparkling Refreshment
Try combining sparkling water with fruit juice or homemade cordial. Elderflower cordial is a quintessentially British summer flavour, perfect for a light and floral drink. Mix in a few fresh berries to the jar, top with elderflower cordial and add chilled sparkling water. For a zestier twist, try alternatives such as grapefruit and rosemary.

Creamy Coolers
If you fancy something creamy, why not try a smoothie in a jar? Blend frozen fruits such as mango, pineapple, or banana with yoghurt and a splash of milk for a thick and satisfying drink. If you feel like it, a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of granola for a delightful treat.

Something for the Grown Ups
Of course, summer isn't just about the little ones. For the adults, why not try a twist on a classic Pimms? Mix some chopped cucumber, mint leaves, and strawberries in a jar. Add a generous measure of Pimms, top with lemonade and a splash of soda water. If you fancy, garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of mint for a delightful summer cocktail, perfect for a relaxed afternoon in the garden.
