The Sweet Tooth: Feed your sugar craving with a splash of Pinnacle Whipped Cream vodka spiked with a half-teaspoon of orange Jell-o crystals. Enjoy the Creamsicle Jell-o shot in a Guyot Designs Squishy Travel Shot Glass. $8 for 2, guyotdesigns.com
The Teetotaler: If you prefer evenings to be recovery time rather than party time, sip some hot Owl Instant Ginger Tea from your Snow Peak 450 Titanium Single Wall Cup. Tea: $5/20 packets at Asian grocery stores. Cup: $32, 2.1 oz., snowpeak.com
