BYOB sketchballs rejoice! No more carrying around airplane liquor bottles in a brown bag. Kickstick will have your drinking like a degenerate in style!
Portable liquor has a good amount problems beyond just the stigma of carrying around booze in your pocket. Mini liquor bottles are awkward. Flasks pour too slowly. And if you’re foolish enough to buy a pre-poured neon shots in a tube, you’re drinking Kool-Aid… literally.
A new Kickstarter campaign gives you a new way to carry around a few shots worth of booze. Kickstick was created by a hockey player (Colgate then Denmark), and if there’s one thing I know about hockey players, they know how to party. No one aspect of the Kickstick makes it worth the price, but once you account for all the different ways it can be used there’s no denying its value.
SHOTS! My biggest complaint about flasks is how slowly they pour. Have you ever realized how many sips you can take from just a 6-ounce flask? It’s damn near 50. Unless you’re toting great whiskey, which you know damn well you aren’t, the last thing you want is it to take 3 seconds to get a full shot. Kickstick solves that by making both ends removable so you’re essentially shotgunning the booze.
At some point guys always think they should bring their own whiskey to a bar/game and just order a Coke. The odds of you not getting caught are pretty bad though, especially once you start to get drunk. The fact that Kickstick can dump the booze then turn into a straw makes you look like a weirdo who carries your own straw instead of a guy who needs to be kicked out.
Last but not least is the fact that the two ends of the Kickstick turn into dice. While I don’t recommend playing drinking games with liquor, unless it’s Jager Bomb Pong, no one is stopping you from getting beer in addition to your DIY shot. Just don’t lose them or you’ve officially wasted a perfectly good booze carrying vessel.
Kicksticks are recyclable and a whole bunch of other stuff that’s probably importantly but you definitely don’t care about. The minimum backing to get a Kickstick is $15, but there are all sorts of rewards including six packs, golf balls, and bro tanks. Check it out on the Kickstarter Page.
