It doesn’t matter if you’re at the beach, on a picnic in the park or camping in the wilderness—a day spent in the great outdoors is always better with drinks. And while we have no issue with a simple six-pack of brewskis, cocktails are a worthwhile upgrade.
“Cocktails outside?” you’re saying. “It can’t be done! Think about the sand and dirt-caked limes and bottles!” We did think about that and have come up with a few easy ways to serve cocktails in less than accommodating settings—Sand-tinis not included. All that’s required is a bit of pre-prep and a gallon-sized jug.
Each of these large format drinks is not only highly sippable, but also super easy to transport: You can make them in a simple gallon jug with a handle, or go a more eco-friendly route by rescuing old glass milk jugs from your local thrift store or recycling juice containers—all of which fit easily into a cooler and make for mess-free refills.
