What's that in your pocket? Your friends will be oh so envious when they find out what you brought to the golf course, ballgame or down to the river. No, it's not a fat wallet -- it's a personal, single serving of your favourite hard liquor! Pocket Shot offer a selection of vodka, tequila, gin and whiskey -- in a stand-up pouch. It's like Capri Sun for grownups! And just like the kids, you can pack it along for lunch. What better way to enjoy your afternoon at the office?

For those of age, Pocket Shots are ideal for the frugal lush; we all know buying drinks at the club can get ridiculously expensive. No one said you can't be cheap to get sloshed!
