2 NALGENE FLASK
Wild Turkey on Saturday and Jà¤germeister on Sunday? Not a problem for Nalgene's trusty new 12-ounce flask: It's made of taste- and odor-resistant plastic and has a shot-size cap for sharing with a friend.
3 VORTEX HAND CRANK BLENDER AND MARGARITA GLASSES
(Blender: $70; glasses: $6 each; gsioutdoors.com)
Clamp the Vortex to your tailgate or a picnic table (clamp sold separately). Add drink, mix, and ice (or snow). Crank. Enjoy a blended frozen beverage. The Lexan glasses unscrew into two pieces for easy packing.
4 TROUT RIVER GROWLER
Growlers? Growlers are refillable, half-gallon (64-ounce) jugs of fresh draft beer, available only at microbreweries. We got this one from Lyndonville, Vermont's Trout River Brewing Company-located seven miles from Burke Mountain-where you can buy a refill for just $7.
5 THERMOS E5 TRAVEL MUG
This leakproof mug features a 360-degree lid that allows you to drink from any angle-freeing your mouth from the oppression of unidirectional sippy cups.
