A preferred serving of Long Island Iced Tea is in a mason jar . The tight lid prevents spilling of the drink and holds the straw intact. The handle of the mason jar allows you to hold the jar comfortably and keeps the drink cooler for a longer time. When you hold the jar with a handle, there is no physical contact between your hand and the drink, this prevents the drink to heat up via body heat.
