Now that the temperature is climbing, it’s time to rediscover the beauties of the great outdoors. We can’t think of a better way to do that than ending a day of hiking by raising a glass to sweet Mother Nature. So pack up that tent—and load up on water.

Cocktail Crate Spiced Old Fashioned Craft Mixer; $9.95 at Sur La Table

PRO-1813120 - Cocktail Crate Spiced Old Fashioned Craft Mixer

Opt for mixes instead of lugging a ton of different ingredients into the woods. Just add the whisky to this mixer (homemade in Queens, NY) and you’ll be camping among the best in no time. Save 20% with this Sur La Table promo code, too; it’s valid through 6/22.

Picnic Time Manhattan Deluxe Insulated Cocktail Case; $179.95 at Brookstone

Picnic Time Manhattan Deluxe Insulated Cocktail Case   Service for 2

This case lets you quite literally take the bar with you. It’s got two hand-blown martini glasses, a stainless steel shaker, a double-sided jigger, ice tongs, a strainer, olive picks, a Vermouth mister, a fork/spoon stirrer, and two cloth napkins. Martini by the fire, anyone? Through 6/29, save $20 when you use this Brookstone coupon code, too.

NorChill 24-Can Collapsible Cooler; $49.99 at Target

Blue NorChill 48 Can Soft Side Cooler

Prefer something a little more bubbly? This cooler holds 24 cans, and after you’ve raided its contents, it collapses down to save space on the trip back home. Fun fact: it also fits underneath airline seats, though we recommend removing those 24 cans first.

Toast of the Town Flask; $39 at Restoration Hardware

This handsome flask holds eight ounces and has a top with four built-in shot glasses. A leak-proof cap, canvas wrap, and leather trim make it perfectly rugged to withstand a long day of hiking. When you're ready, so's your toast.
