For the sip and go culture
I love to take ice tea mixed with pomegranate juice with me in the car. I like to mix this concoction in mason jars. This how-to shows you how to make a travel mug/sippy cup/spill-resistant container for drinking and traveling. The tutorial is a inspired by several other projects around the web, so thank you to all those mason jar crafters!

When you get your grommet from the hardware store, it will have an inner diameter and and outer diameter. The inner diameter is a little larger than the diameter of the straw. You will want to drill your hole to the dimension OUTER diameter of the grommet so that the it will fit snugly into the jar lid.
If you go to your local hardware store and not home depot, they will explain this to you if it's not clear with my description (written, of course, while drinking a glass of wine - yum! But I'm not drinking it from a jar).
I tried drilling the lid a couple of ways: 1. while screwed on the jar and 2. by putting the lid onto a block of wood and I think drilling while on the jar worked best. You may have to use pliers or tin snips to remove bits of lid that remain around the hole that you've just made. I put the entire drill set up in a big box and drilled to contain the metal shards.
