Bottoms up

Want to bring the thrill of the shot ski home for personal enjoyment? Look no further than instantshotski.com. Thanks to two enterprising ski bums from Boston, shot skis are not only a breeze to assemble, done in about a minute using self-adhesive brackets, but a breeze to disassemble and wash. If you’re into that kind of thing – personally, we think the booze does a good enough job of sanitizing.

The kit sells for $39, which includes four brackets with shot glass-sized openings, as well as easy-to-follow directions that even tipsy apre?sers can understand. There are also a variety of other kits that can turn everything including a crutch, hockey stick, paddle and yes, tiki torch, into a vessel for imbibing. Best of all, the manufacturers – Brian Miley and Ben Huggi – tout the ergonomic design as “moustache friendly.”

The brackets will hold most regular-sized shot glasses. Huggi highly recommended skiing with glasses (plastic for obvious reasons) attached for impromptu on-slope refreshment, as he regularly does with his K2 “Party” Pontoons.
