The Mason Shaker

The Mason Shaker is a good idea. So much so, that creators Eric Plum and Josh Williams raised $74,738 after asking for $5000 on Kickstarter. They are well on their way to getting the mason cocktail shaker in every restaurant bar and home across the US, but more importantly, (and fittingly) the South. 

Southern boys, Eric and Josh met as Freshman at UVA and have been best friends ever since. With a combined culinary and design background, they came up with the idea of the Mason Shaker. As they state on their Kickstarter site, "The concept for the Mason Shaker was developed from an obsession with vintage kitchenware (Josh) and an uncanny ability to fashion impromptu drinking tools at a moment's notice (Eric).

After lots of testing and prototypes, they decided on the screw top, which fits a standard Ball jar. 

Good packaging goes a long way and I love to see that the design perfectly fits the rustic, southern cool of the mason jar. 

The Mason Shakers will be available for the first time in September. Check their social media page to see its progress. But... I have some good news. Eric has offered one lucky Sweet Peach fan a free Mason Shaker before anyone else gets their hands on one...

This is a great idea. I'm surprised it hasn't been done before.

If only I had a facebook anymore!! I love mason jars so much and I even ran my own shop dedicated to them. Anyway, since I can't leave my favorite drink on fb, I'll leave it here:

Muddle ginger and squeezed fresh lemon juice
add a couple shakes of cranberry bitters and shot of vodka
Pour Diet Vernors over it
and enjoy!

Don't know what it's called but I'll call it a Mason Mule :)
