When mixing these cocktails ahead of time to take with you to an event, we recommend making them in a shaker, then straining them into the Mason Jar to prevent dilution. Store these cocktails in a cooler full of ice, then add ice to your jar and give them a quick shake when you’re ready to drink them!
