Each bottle contains 16 oz, or enough to make 32 cocktails. Just mix .5 oz of syrup with 2 oz. of your favorite bourbon or rye whiskey, pour over ice, and enjoy.
The best part of owning a growler is the ability to take fresh beer, right off the tap, anywhere you go. The worst part of course, is when it runs out. With The Juggernaut from DrinkTanks, it will still run dry, but not until 128 ounces — twice the size of your average growler — are consumed. It's cast from top notch stainless steel, with a double wall vacuum insulation and a cap that locks securely by a sturdy double bail locking system. It'll keep your precious beer cold for more than 24 hours and even comes in 11 different finishes.

Just place your blender/cooking insert on the base, follow the instructions, and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
