just buy good vodka and put it in a water bottle. be sure to label them though, last year we had a guy who had just finished cooking our whole camp burgers, and needed a nice cooling splash of water on his face. instead, he got vodka. it was quacking hilarious.

One morning after a serious night of drinking on Fire Island my brother pounded a nice cold glass of icy vodka. That really sucked for him. I will be putting vodka in a soda bottle myself. I never camp without vodka. I gotta have my vodka and Gatorade in the morning and my vodka and pickles at lunch. If you've never chased a shot of vodka with a kosher dill pickle try it. I was skeptical at first, but it made me love pickles.

I'm hoping I can somehow mix a giant 70oz. frozen mixed drink for my camelbak one of the days...I need to find a battery powered blender with a plastic pitcher....any suggestions? For me Smirnoff Blue Label is tops....cheap, tasty and STRONG!
**EDIT** Just though of this: There is a brand called Dansk vodka, it comes in an aluminum bottle with red lettering on it, it's not to bad at all. Cheep as well.
Bartons. The staple of college students everywhere. NOT TOP SHELF by any stretch of the imagination, but, it does come in a plastic handle. And it's cheep. Really, really, really cheep. Like $9 - $13 per handle cheep.
Now, I'm a Belvedere man, so it'll take some adjustment, but thats what I'll be bringing.
But, honestly, if you bury that sh1t in your trunk, I doubt it will get confiscated.
I don't know about in the States, but if you get a big enough bottle of Grey Goose in Canada, it comes in a plastic bottle. Just be prepared to look like a lush when you bring in enough vodka to take down an elephant.
I guess you could bring a bunch of mickeys, too, but that's a hassle.

I got a leftover plastic bottle of smirnoff. It's kinda small....a plastic flask size bottle. It will probably be good enough for myself and my girlfriend. I'd suggest getting some plastic bottles at the store but thats up to you.
If you cant find Bartons or Dansk you could also look for Aristocrat. If i remember correctly it comes in a plastic bottle if you buy the larger sized handle. Definitely not the best tasting vodka but its quite cheap.
this shouldnt even be a discussion just transfer whatever liquor you want into any plastic bottle and you will be fine, and making big mix drinks in your camelbak is the best way to get your booze on in centeroo
I'm not sure what brand we're going to use for our jello-shots, but hopefully something good and strong. Maybe Burnett's.
Each jello shot will be in 3 oz. containers and have a little over an ounce of liquor in each shot. Were still negotiating the price, but were thinking $5 a shot or 5 for $20.
what do you guys think about the pricing? They're big jello shots, but I'm not trying to rip anyone off or anything and we're going to barter too if we can.
With about an ounce of liquor in each one that's essentially five bucks a shot. I personally wouldn't pay more than like two bucks for a Jell-O shot, but that may just be me. Think about it like this though, you can use cheap vodka because the taste of the Jell-O will just cover it up anyway. So if you drop 10-15 on a handle and another couple bucks on Jell-O, you've invested less than $20. If you charge $3 a piece you'll have a lot more people willing to buy them. A handle has over 50 ounces in it, so you still have the potential to make $150 per handle and you'll probably sell them quicker.
Then again it's all supply and demand. If enough people are willing to drop 5 bucks a shot, then why not make the extra money?
this shouldnt even be a discussion just transfer whatever liquor you want into any plastic bottle and you will be fine
This was my original plan, but doesn't that count as an open container? The TN law says that open containers have to be in an area not accessible to the driver or passengers, i.e. the trunk. We're going in a SUV so we don't have a closed off trunk. Does anyone think this could cause problems if we do the transfer it to a plastic bottle thing?
1 for 3, 2 for 5 on the jello shots is what i've always seen as the going rate.
For those of you looking for a really good, cheap vodka, give Tito's a shot. I bartend at a pretty nice place and i got my regular Grey Goose drinkers hooked on the stuff for a lower cost. Great for Bloody Marys in the morning and with tonic later in the day.
"Franco the Bartender" pouring our HUGE Tito's and Red Bulls at the Media Lounge in the Hard Rock Hotel last year during Lollapalooza. He literally poured half of a bottle in each of our drinks. (I'm pretty sure that was Mr. Fiasco in the background on the balcony)
I haven't tried it on the rocks, but it went down pretty easily and in large quantities! haha... Gotta love parties hosted by liquor companies.

my friend drinks nothing but plastic bottled vodka, ie popov and rubinoff that sells for about $15 a handle. blech. i dont even like "good" vodka, i think its an oxymoron to be honest. it tastes like alcohol! drink tequila is has flavor.
