On-the-Go Cocktails for Springtime Travel!

Are you planning a mini-vacation or weekend road trip anytime soon? With Spring Break just around the corner, it's a great time to hit the road for some rest and relaxation. Whether you're gearing up for a long flight across the country or an exotic weekend getaway, there's nothing better than enjoying a well-made drink once you arrive at the destination. Instead of ordering a drink at the bar or waiting for the airline beverage cart to roll by, upgrade your cocktail game and flip the switch to "vacation-mode" with a few simple tips and cocktail recipes for on-the-go mixing.


With just a few basic cocktail ingredients packed and ready to go, you can mix mid-flight, while backpacking through your favorite trails or while relaxing on the beach. It's so much easier than you think and thanks to Hornitos Mixologist, Carlos Abeyta, we have a few go-to tips for making first class drinks anytime...anywhere!



Tips for On-The-Go Mixing:

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!

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 or garnish for your drink.

Tip #3 ~ Plan as you go! Grab extra mixers on your way to the final destination so you have all of the ingredients you'll need for a cocktail, just purchase a premium ginger ale a the airport or order a fresh-squeezed juice at breakfast.
