Retro Refresher

Looking for an alternative to plastic pitchers this summer? Take a sip from the Beehive drink dispenser, perfect for serving lemonade, sun tea or sangria. The classic beehive shape makes your beverage the centerpiece by showing off fresh fruit and herbs that are kept cool inside the generous but not massive glass jar. Constructed of hefty ribbed glass in a cool retro style, the Beehive dispenser has a wide mouth that makes it easy to fill with beverages, ice, and sliced fruit, and also a cinch to clean. The easy-pour spout controls the liquid flow so there’s no mess. It holds two gallons, so it’s large enough to accommodate a group but still fits nicely on a countertop or patio table. Whether you’re serving a crowd of thirsty guests or looking for an irresistible hostess gift, the Beehive drink dispenser is an elegant way to show off your style.

    If its a blended drink and there is pulp from the fruit, it might clog the spigot. It is great fro lemonade, sangria, ice tea and etc.

    We often have a yard full of kids. I love that this could be a self-service drink station for them so they don't have to drag dirty feet into the kitchen but it's also nice enough that it could be used for a dinner party.

    How often do you find that the drink needs to be stirred-as with lemonade and punches?

  • joanne

    @kerry - I made citrus water and after adding the fruit I never stirred it at all. BTW, the fruit ( lemon, lime and oranges ) floats so I had no problem with it interfering with the pour spout. If making drinks with a powdered lemonade or fruit punch mix I would stir it until the powder is dissolved and that's it. I suppose that this might depend on which kind of powder you use and how well it dissolves. Hope this helps.

    @Kerry I find that different drinks need different amounts of stirring. It really is a personal preference. I personally just make lemonade or ice tea, give it a good stir and enjoy until drained. Enjoy!

    Ordered this today for friends who hosted us this weekend up in NH. Perfect Grommet timing! We picked 8 lbs. of blueberries at a local farm up there -- so my friend is thinking their first beverage creation might be blueberry-infused vodka. While some would think to bake a pie.....
