Portable Travel Bars – A Caregiver’s Best Friend (Sometimes)
Let’s face it – being a caregiver sometimes can drive one to drink. And, while driving to get a drink is not a good idea (pun intended), these portable travel bars bring a cocktail (or two) right to your favorite caregiver.
Don’t get me wrong – Mom and I both used our portable travel bar. I stocked a bottle of Maker’s Mark bourbon for her and a bottle of Stoli vodka for me. We toted that bar everywhere with us so we were never far away from libations.
A portable travel bar is a great gift for anyone but so much so for your favorite caregiver who might need a cocktail at the end of a trying day.
Most portable bar sets come complete with everything you need to make a martini, cosmopolitan, or any shaken (not stirred) cocktail. Just bring your own liquor and mixer and you’re good to go. There’s also portable travel wine bars for those who prefer a bit of the grape!
Travel bars used to be the rage back in Grandpa’s day so get him one of the nice ones below. They’re sure to invoke some fun memories of days gone by. Who knows, you might even get a story or two out of the deal!Picnic Time Legacy Collection Hamilton Travel Cocktail Set
