Mason Jars, Canning, and #CanitForward

Recently, Ball brand canning jars (Mason jars) got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to test out a few of their goodies. First, the canning jars. And then the The New Limited Edition Spring Green Heritage Collection Jars.  And lastly, the Mason Jar Infuser. OF COURSE I OBLIGED. That’s a no-brainer, since I use mason jars regularly for [a thousand] other things. AND! These jars are *special*. Why, you ask? Because they’re green. (Ooooh shiny! Oooh fancy!!)

I’m a huge fan of mason jars. I used them for a cute way to gift some sugar scrub last Christmas. Srub_CompleteAnd today? We’re going to use them as glasses. For drinks. This is one of our favorite summertime drinks. Well, it used to be something I drank. But now? Fetus. Fetus does not like or appreciate the alcohol. Also, in case you didn’t know, Jack Daniels and Triple Sec contain alcohol. So if you’re making (and drinking) these drinks, don’t be an idiot and do stupid things. And drink them if you’re legal. If you’re not legal and/or an idiot, I will come find you and punch you in the teeth. #butforreal

  •  1 part sour
  • 1 part Jack.
  • 1 part Triple Sec
  • 4ish parts lemon-lime soda. Husband prefers Sierra Mist, but that’s all up to you.

Mix it around in the jar, and viola. Instantly summer. (No, I did not take this photo. I found it using the google machine. I ran out of energy to take pictures after I made the drinks. BECAUSE I’M GROWING A HUMAN!)


Don’t you worry your pretty little heads. I’ll be back later with a fun project on what we did with these other jars. AND A GIVEAWAY! YOU CAN HAVE A SET OF THESE FOR YOUR VERY OWN!!!

Oprah_WinningBUT TODAY!!, they’re hosting their first annual “International Can-It-Forward Day” featuring Top Chef’s judge, Hugh Acheson. To check out the live webcast celebrating home canning (and there are giveaways on the site as well!), check this link out! You won’t be sorry.
