There are a lot of great things you can pack into a mason jar, but when it comes to holidays and the chill of the wind outside, there are few things that compare to hot apple cider that’s spiked with both cinnamon whiskey and honey whiskey.
This gift uses individual packets of powdered apple cider mix tucked into mason jars with cute little bottles of whiskey. A cinnamon stick and candy cane garnish attached with festive twine are the perfect way to say cheers to the holidays.
We love all the DIY Mason jar cocktail gift ideas on this list. If you’re hosting a holiday get-together or want to surprise your hostess with something that they’ll truly enjoy after the party is over, these cute little cocktails in a jar couldn’t be more perfect.
Our personal favorite on this list is the Mar-Jar-Rita with a margarita mix can and a little bottle of tequila attached with twine. We might even add in a little package of cocktail salt to rim the jar with.

With all the vibrant fruits, sangria is a wonderful drink for the holiday season. This Mason jar cocktail gift packs all the fruit and accompaniments into a Mason jar, and then the wine is gifted on the side. This recipe has two versions, one for a pitcher-sized gift and one for smaller Mason jars. This recipe doesn’t mention it, but you could easily gift this with a single serving-size bottle of wine or brandy.
One thing to note about the sangria jars is that the fruit is perishable, so save this one to prepare at the last minute right before gifting.
