Mini bar kit

If you prefer to kick back with a Mint Julep or a Manhattan, you can easily mix one of those up at your campsite — if you're prepared. Assemble your very own mini bar kit before you hit the trail, and you'll be ready to sip a hot toddy before crawling into your sleeping bag. Simply pick up a toiletry kit and stock it with minibottles, small containers of mixers, spices and anything else your favorite drink requires. With just 12 ingredients, you'll be prepared to make a variety of campsite cocktails.
