Cocktail Gear for Camping Out

Vortex Crank BlenderWe're all about hunkering down on the weekends, glued to the couch with the bottle of our choice. But, to quote Tenacious D, "Sometimes you gotta leave your zone of safety. You have to manufacture Inspirado. You gotta get out of the apartment. You've got to run with the wolves. You've got to dive into the ocean and fight with the sharks. Or just treat yourself to a delicious hot fudge sundae. With nuts." We feel the same way, if by "hot fudge sundae" you mean "cocktails." A good way to do that is to get your ass out there and go camping, but just because you're outside doesn't mean you can't have the comforts of home - namely, your bar tools.

GSI Outdoors makes all kinds of camp cookware and well, bar accessories for campers, and provides a link to peak62 where you can buy the products, often for less than the retail price, online. So you can find that margarita glass in stainless steel for $8.95, while plastic costs $4.95.

Of course, if you like frozen margaritas, you'll need a blender. GSI lists a hand-crank model called the Vortex that crushes the ice in your cooler to the right consistency for margaritas and other frozen drinks. It'll set you back $69.95 at peak62. For $34.95, you can get a small table that clamps to your trailer hitch, and holds your blender while you crank.
