My kids like it when I put a funky twist on the everyday items we use and I like to keep things interesting – so, this idea was a hit with all of us.
Modern milk and cookies - ginger ale bottles are reused as glassware & butter cookies are stacked onto straws.
I used a funnel to fill my bottles.
I used 10-oz ginger ale bottles. Soak off labels and clean bottles with hot water and dish soap. After each use, I place these in the dishwasher and they clean up well, but you could also hand wash with a bottle brush.

What a wonderful idea! I love the how the straw is the same color as the bottle. The idea of the cookies through the straw is fantastic! so darn cute!

I love using bottles. I bought some Grolsch beer and we use the bottles for water. There’s nothing like drinking ice cold water out of a bottle on a hot summer day. I think the same might be true of milk!

Hi, I love these! Soooo cute! My question is what brand are the cookies? I ate cookies that looked just like these as a child and can no longer find them! Thanks for any info.

Hi Tina, Those are Salerno butter cookies – believe it or not – I did a quick search for you and found them on Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Salerno-Butter-Cookies-16-oz-Pack/dp/B000P0KVVS
Take care, C
