DIY Salt and Pepper Corona Shakers - #CoronaSummer


Fire up those grills, put the Coronas on ice and keep these Corona salt and pepper shakers close by. It's BBQ season! However, as with all alcoholic drinks, please drink responsibly.


Living in New York City, the beer of choice has always been Corona. Every summer one of our family members or friends would throw an epic backyard party, complete with jerk chicken, bbq chicken, ribs, the full works. Everyone attends and also bring a dish. I mean, come on, you can't go to a party empty handed. However, when asked what drink to bring, the universal cry has always been, "bring a 6-pack of Corona". Even now, living in Colorado, things haven't really changed in my household. The beer of choice whenever we throw a backyard BBQ is still Corona. With our 4th of July BBQ coming up, I decided that I was not going to use my elegant salt and pepper shakers, I wanted something that would fit in the theme of a BBQ and came up the Corona Salt and Pepper Shakers. Not only will it fit in with the rest of the beer, but if they end up breaking, me nor my guest would feel too bad about it. They also hold quite a lot more than an ordinary salt and pepper shaker making them exactly what you need at a BBQ.


Writing this post has been bittersweet. While I love New York City and it's still considered home, I haven't been back in the summer in quite some time. I miss my family and my friends. Sitting on a Brooklyn brownstone stoop and taking in the sights. Watching the cars drive by, and the people in their latest fashion. Being able to run to the corner store when I run out of something that I need in the house. Just being a general New Yorker! Those were the good old days and the ones that I miss dearly, but the memories remain in my heart. I have to say, however that this is by far one of the easiest "craft", if you can call it a craft that I have ever done on this site. And if you have a Corona drinker in your family, this will make an exceptional gift as well.

Salt and Pepper Corona Shakers

Supplies:

Empty Corona Bottles
Corona Salt and Pepper Caps
Salt
Pepper

Directions:

Step 1: In an empty Corona bottle, pour salt into one and pepper into another.

Step 2: Snap your caps onto the top of your bottle and voila, you're done!


All it takes is two simple steps and I couldn't understand why I didn't think of doing these salt and pepper shakers in the past. Now, whenever we pull out the grill and get ready for our BBQ, we'll not only have our ice cold Coronas on hand, but we'll have our Corona salt and pepper shaker to complete our BBQ. And as with all Coronas, don't forget the lime. It's a New York thing!
