These Boozy Juice Pouches Are a Beach Game Changer

Because nothing says beach day like a cocktail in a bag. 

No-glass beaches, you’ve met your match. These super easy cocktail pouches are the perfect way to respect the coastal customs while still getting your drink on. And frankly, we’re wondering why it took us so long to give it a shot.

So simple, right? Just grab a pack of tall and skinny zip-top bags, add a cute saying and fill with your seaside drink of choice. If you plan to freeze your drink, which I highly recommend, be sure to leave enough room for it to expand in the freezer. The alcohol will keep it a little slushy, so don’t worry about a rock-hard cocktail come beach time.

Aside from the obvious fun factor, these innovative cocktail receptacles actually offer several benefits. Throw a few in your cooler before heading out for a day of sun-bathing or a picnic in the park. They’ll keep other items cold until you’re ready for a refreshment. Plus, they’re resealable. So instead of plopping them down in the sand, you can easily seal them up and toss them back in the cooler until you’re ready for more.

But one of the best benefits of all is how easy it is to customize drinks for everyone. Mom likes frozen margaritas, but you prefer on the rocks? No problem. Just make your personal cocktail pouch right before heading out, add some ice and you’re good to go! Cocktails all around!
