Happy Holidays from OkStraw

Christmas Paper Straws

It’s December, and you know what that means? The holidays are coming, and we’re in a festive mood at OkStraw Paper Straws. We’re writing letters to Santa, hanging up our stockings, and hoping to find paper straws under the Christmas tree!

 

Here at OkStraw, we have paper straws to fit your holiday needs. Holidays are special occasions, so special occasions call for special drinks, and of course paper straws. So grab a drink and a paper straw, because we have some beverage ideas for your holiday festivities.

Paper Straws for your Cocktail Needs

We love a great cocktail for the holidays, and OkStraw has some ideas for you! If you’re celebrating Kwanzaa, then give this classic cocktail a try. Invented by the first African American cocktail book author Tom Bullock, the Stinger celebrates a true trailblazer. The Stinger consists of brandy and creme de menthe, a mint-flavored spirit. Serve it over ice in a cocktail glass, complete with an OkStraw Paper Bar Stir. 

Hannukah’s on the way, and that means here comes the Manischewitz! This sweet kosher wine is a holiday staple, and it makes for great cocktails, too! Mix Manischewitz, lemon-lime soda, fruits and vodka for a Hannukah Sangria. Serve with a paper bar stir, or if you’re feeling especially generous, try OkStraw paper tiki straws! L’Chaim!

Eggnog for Grownups and Wintry Boba

Eggnog is an old childhood Christmas drink favorite, and it’s for adults too! Adult eggnog is your regular nog, but with a kick from brandy, bourbon or rum. One or two shots per serving should do the trick, and is best served chilled. Now a heavy drink like eggnog calls for a tough straw, and that’s where OkStraw Giant Paper Straws come in. Available in festive colors, OkStraw Giant Paper Straws are perfect for your Christmas beverage needs.

After all, who doesn’t love wintry flavored bubble tea? Just prepare boba tea the way you do, and add your prefered seasonal spice powder or syrup. Our favorites are peppermint and pumpkin spice boba tea. Of course no boba drink is complete without an OkStraw Bubble Paper Straw! Available in 3 or 4 ply and in different designs, our paper boba straws are perfect for any occasion. 

Deck the Halls with Paper Straws

Ok, our rhyming is still a work in progress, but you get the idea. Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or all three, choose OkStraw paper straws. Available in fun, festive colors, our paper straws are the perfect compliment to your holiday celebrations. 

 

OkStraw biodegradable paper straws come from sustainable forestry practices, and we only use organic materials. 100 percent plastic free and with no animal byproducts, OkStraw paper straws are perfect for any occasion. From all of us at OkStraw, happy holidays, and a very merry Cause for Paper Straws!

With more states and cities placing bans on single-use plastic straws, the demand for high quality paper straws at wholesale restaurant pricing has never been greater.

LRA EXPO 2019 will be OkStraw’s debut at the event, but it most certainly will not be our last. With more states and cities placing bans on single-use plastic straws, the demand for high quality paper straws at restaurant wholesale pricing has never been greater. OkStraw has previously exhibited at the 2019 International Restaurant and Foodservice Show of New York, and the 2019 International Restaurant Association Show in Chicago.

We at OkStraw are excited to build rapport with owners and representatives of restaurants, hotels and cafes from across the country. With competitive wholesale paper straw deals and custom designs available to suit your establishment’s needs, we are here to deliver service as strong as our straws.
