Silver sipper straws are great fun. They are a brilliant combination allowing continuous sipping of your drink through the straw while simultaneously being able to stir it to keep the mixture perfect. I look at this particular set and instantly think ‘Mad Men’…while I’m not sure I can imagine Don Draper using one, I can definitely see Joan Holloway enjoying her drink this way.
Silver Sipper Straws
Cocktail hour is calling. Your Friday mission is to inspire me and tell me what cocktail you would drink through these great mid-century silver sipper straws? Let me know in the comments below what drink you suggest. The winner (as determined by me) gets a shoutout next Friday…they might even get a small token of my appreciation…possibly something cocktail related. 🙂 So dig out your favorite drink recipe and inspire me.
FYI these silver sipper straws were made in Uxmal, Mexico probably in the 60’s. If you are unfamiliar with sipper straws they are literally straws with a small spoon bowl attached to the bottom. Unlike bombillas used for drinking mate, these do not have a filter, they are also made of sterling silver rather than a silver substitute.
Remember to leave me your suggestions. Even better, include your recipes in the comments below, after all I’ll need to do some taste testing with my select panel of trusted cocktail connoisseurs. You can’t win if you don’t enter!
