Whether you’re gearing up for a long flight or an exotic weekend getaway, there is nothing better this spring travel season than enjoying a well-made drink. Instead of ordering a drink at the bar or waiting for the airline beverage cart to roll by, you can upgrade your cocktail game and flip the switch to “vacation mode” with a few simple tips/recipes for on-the go mixing.

With the basic cocktail ingredients packed and ready-to-go, you can mix mid-flight and relax before backpacking through your favorite trails or relaxing at the beach.

Tips for On-the-Go Mixing:

Ø  Tip #1 – take tequila along for the journey

Whether you’re flying or backpacking, be sure to pack your travel-friendly Hornitos bottles in a travel bag so the main cocktail ingredient – tequila – is easily accessible!

Ø  Tip #2 – save room for citrus

Take a few minutes before you leave to pack some fresh fruit in a travel-safe bag – this will be a handy juice and/or garnish for your drink.

Ø  Tip #3 – plan as you go

Grab extra mixers on your way to your final destination so you have all the ingredients you’ll need for a cocktail, just purchase a premium ginger ale in the airport terminal or order a fresh-squeezed juice at breakfast.
