Good news for wine enthusiasts! In my quest to make something cool for mixing and pouring my martini, I landed up with the idea of mason jar shakers, after coming across an interesting post in Frock Files. Here is how I made it:
How to Make a Mason Jar Shaker
- Mason jar with lid
- Drill with a 1/8’’ or 7/64” bit
- Use your creativity to pencil a pattern of dots on top of the lid of the mason jar. You will drill holes on these dots. This step is optional as you can just drill throughout the lid keeping a constant gap between the holes. I spaced the holes by a quarter of an inch.
- Start drilling with a high speed of the machine. This prevents you from excessive sanding in the next step.
- Sand the rough edges to clean off chipped particles. You really don’t need to smoothen the irregularities perfectly.
For a good shake, close the filled mason jar with a regular lid. Once you are done, replace with the perforated lid and pour! I simply love to shake up my favorite cocktails with my customized mason jar.
Ideas for Fashionable Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker Lids
Make your mason jar shakers interesting with quirky designs on their tops. You could dot them with a heart, star, or even an espresso shot glass. Though the number of holes is completely up to you, avoid cluttering with too many of them.
Next time you make a drink, you will pat yourself on the back for your crafting efforts. Who knew your own shaker bottle could come at such a low cost yet with high returns?
