The Picnic Time Manhattan Portable Travel Bar Set – Fun On The Go!

Introducing our favorite travel bar set – the Picnic Time Manhattan Portable Travel Bar Set

 Picnic Time Manhattan Insulated Two-Bottle Cocktail Case/Bar Tool Kit, MahoganyCheck PriceHot summer days provide boaters with no special reason for throwing a party but, just in case we should have the need, we always carry along our Picnic Time Manhattan Portable Travel Bar set.

(Note: don’t take the name literally – this beautiful travel bar doesn’t just make Manhattans; it’s great for martinis, scotch or whiskey sours – you get the idea….).

John and I often go rafting up with friends, anchoring our boats together offshore for a few hours of good company along with good food and drink. But of course, since the boat galley is so small, for these floating festivals of fun, we need a portable bar. And, John, being a good bartender and a better host, has the perfect solution. He brings on board his Picnic Time Manhattan Insulated Two-Bottle Cocktail Case/Bar Tool Kit that you see there to the left.

This suitcase-style travel bar has everything we need to serve up our favorite cocktails – Manhattans and Martinis, perhaps. John either carries the cocktail case aboard with its adjustable luggage strap or I might tote it with the sturdy handle.

We love this particular travel bar because of the lovely velveteen-lined interior which protects and showcases its libations. And, this portable bar has a fully insulated divided compartment that accommodates 2 “fifths” or 2 “liter” sized bottles of your best liquor.

The bar kit comes complete with 2 martini glasses, a cocktail shaker, jigger, tongs, strainer, stirrer, Vermouth mister, and even includes olive picks and napkins! All you need to do is grab your favorite liquors, a bottle of onions (for a good Gibson), olives for martinis, and hit the road – well, the water.

The exterior of the Picnic Time Manhattan Insulated Two-Bottle Cocktail Case/Bar Tool Kit is constructed of nice quality leatherette, which you can even have personally monogrammed to suit your mixologist.

Now, if that doesn’t impress your boater friends upon the sea, we don’t know what will! John and I enjoy being tied up alongside our boating friends, enjoying a good cocktail and having fun on the summertime day.

Of course, the Picnic Time Manhattan Insulated Two-Bottle Cocktail Case/Bar Tool Kits make good gifts for boat owners any time of the year. Just be sure to get yourself one too!

Caution: While on the waterways, do follow all boating safety requirements and do be sure to know the alcohol consumption and BUI regulations in your area before rafting up or operating a boat. Stay safe out there.
