I got a great deal on mason jars… $40 for 120. However when I chalkboard painted them, I realized they are huge. They are the 32 oz (quart).
My question is, will this work for the drinks? We are having lemonade, water and horchata as non-alchoholic drinks.
thanks for your help. Im nervous these are just too big.

Sorry, but – that is HUGE! Is there any way you could return them and get something smaller? That is a ton of liquid, the size of a “large” cup at McDonalds. I would worry that the drinks would get warm/ice would melt, or people would feel weird filling them up to normal cup level capacity, or you would run out of drinks people people would fill them up most of the way. They are also kinda difficult to hold.
Are you using straws also? If not, I could see how spilling would be really easy too with such a wide opening.

I agree, that is huge! Way too big for drinks, IMO.

Hate to break it to you, but they are much to big 🙁 Anyway you can resell them and buy smaller ones?!

I think I have the oposite problem, I ordered 8oz jars and I think they are too small. What do you guys think is the perfect size for mason jar drinks?

@spano41: The 16 oz or pint sized? I actually have those as drinking glasses in my house.

@darby.dayna: well, i think that’s big. however, there is a restaurant in my town that serves their drinks in that size mason jar. i think it might be too big to carry around though…

Did you end up using them? I actually just realized I bought the 32 oz ones for drinks too! I’m not really sure what I’m gonna do but I’m gonna try to just use them I guess…

I am using mason jars as well for drinks ( haven’t go them yet so I thank you for posting this so that I will not make this mistake) so my suggestion for you is to take those jars and make jam with the small ones and pickle something in the large ones – this is what my favours are going to be. If you are not into preservitives get an old cookie recipe and make a jar of the dry ingredients as favours!

But they are the perfect size to put candles in…line a pathway outside, centerpieces, etc!!

You could use them as vases for floral accents.
