Margaritas are like music—they make everything better. They even make music better, which is the only reason Jimmy Buffett has a career. But parking-lot parties, hut trips, and backcountry kicker sessions are outlet-free zones, rendering booze in a blender a nonstarter. The GSI Vortex is an elegant solution. With a hand crank and a base that clamps onto tailgates, snowmobile tunnels, or (in a pinch) tree branches, it can blend anywhere there’s clean snow. The base and handle even nest inside the pitcher for transport. This might be too much of a good thing, if our recent spike in tequila consumption is any indicator.
