Have you ever struggled to find cool, useful stocking stuffers to give to your grownup kids? Or maybe you're looking for the perfect White Elephant that fits under your spending limit for the guy you don't really know at work. I have just the thing for you. 

Let me introduce you to BarCountry's Pocket Cocktails. BarCountry is a Canadian startup that makes powdered mixers that are super packable so you can have drinks on the trail. Our friends to the north have created these perfect packable pouches that come in many different flavors (5 at the time of this writing), and in packets that you can use to measure your ingredients. How simple is that?!

Now, although these handy little pouches are being branded for the trail, take it from this backpacker that they're much more versatile than that. I'm thinking tailgating, family holiday parties, and even regular home use. Just leave a box of these packets with the cooler and grill and you never have to think about grabbing bottles of mixer from the store again.

Or, perhaps like me you need to be a little covert about drinking at Grandma's house during the family holiday gathering. Slide a tiny tequila and margarita mixer packet in your pocket and...BOOM...no one is the wiser.

These things are all around useful for anyone who imbibes on the regular, and for $10 for a pack of 4 these things are a STEAL! Remember what I said about White Elephant gifts? Makes sense now, huh?

We here at Equinox & Solstice Outdoor wholeheartedly endorse these mixers where ever you choose to use them. Check out BarCountry's website, or follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Cheers!
