Party in a Bag

C & I quickly became known as the friends that always had emergency Crown Royal, no matter if we were at home or away. It started as a complete coincidence, then became a thing after it happened "coincidentally" one too many times. (In our defense, it really wasn't planned.)

Eventually, we began to purposefully pack/buy/bring a bottle of Crown everywhere we went, to remain in the box unless it needed to be opened.

Over the holiday, I threw together a newer version of our "emergency Crown"... I decided to make it a little more high-brow and packed a "Manhattan in a bag." Bourbon. Sweet Vermouth. Bitters. Cherries. And a shaker, just in case.

Luckily, I never had to pull this out over the holidays (our desires were satisfied wherever we went), but I'm thinking it may become my new emergency bag when we head out of town.

{It'd make a pretty good gift too!}

Do you have any traditions when visiting family & friends?


  1. That would make the awesomest gift! I have a few people in mind :) Thanks for the idea!

  2. ummmm... can I go with you?!?! What a great idea!!!

    Don't have those types of traditions with the fam... but definitely always surrounded by bottles. Putting it in a bag makes it cuter though ;)

    Happy weekend! xo, Bev

  3. That would be a great gift! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. This is GENIUS! I think that we might need to stock an emergency "gift" bag because we're always needing a last minute beverage to give to someone!

  5. i always keep champagne in the fridge! I don't really have traditions but am known amongst my friends as the one who is way too excited to host a party, especially themed parties!
