Spiking the punch bowl is one thing but this DIY hooch kit takes that to another level. What’s better than your favourite fruit juice, yes that’s right a boozy version of it, that’s no longer a dream, the dream has come true. As you might have gathered were amazed with this kit as it actually does turn your favourite juice into alcohol, just like Jesus turned water into wine, excpept you have to wait at least 48 hours, unlike Jesus who did it straight away. Simply place your favourite juice (ours is orange btw) into a large bottle pour in one of the sachets of “magic” powder, pop on the provided airlock lid and voilà in just 48 hours your juice will now be a potent hooch.
Although the minimum fermentation time is 48 hours the longer you leave it the stronger the juice will get, do this on a Monday and you’ll be good to go on the weekend with a juicy alcoholic version of your favourite juice, just add ice! Like the sound of becoming a small time brew-master then this kit is available from Firebox for the small price of £12.99, get it now by clicking here.

In life there are belts, different colours, styles, shapes, sizes & materials, there’s also all sorts of beers in all sorts of sizes, flavours, etc. When you combine these 2 modern day nessecities, you’re left with the beer belt. The beer belt is quite simply the next big thing in life, fact. The belt is designed so that you can keep your friends close but your
enemies beers closer. What’s more annoying in life, we’ll tell you beforehand that there’s nothing more annoying in life than when you buy a nice pack of your favourite brewskis, bang them in the “communal” fridge, ice bucket etc to find that mysteriously half of your beers have gone missing. What happens here is that things sometimes get messy and at some of the parties we’ve been to (were real party animals by the way, if you include Nanas Tea parties as parties) there’s always someone that will kick off about missing beers, and frankly who can blame him. Avoid getting your beers stolen and the wrath of Dave the nutter by keeping your beers (bottles or cans) by your side at all times, why would you take his beers when you have 6 right by your side. Just strap it on like any other belt and you’ve got 6 holsters with a hole the perfect shape for a brew! Even better if your at a festival as you can avoid big queues, watch on as your mates try desperately to carry more than two beers, you can just buy 6 or even 7 at once, and utilise the hands free technology of the Beer Belt.
• Holds 6 standard cans and bottles
• Fully adjustable belt
If you like the sound and look of the fashion forward beer belt and are interested in its hands free technology then head over to Drink Stuff by clicking here where the beer belt can be purchased for a mere £5.99, a great investment combining style and functionality.

So here at Camping Gadgets, we don’t really gamble so weren’t too familiar with roulette, the game seemed simple enough though, spin the wheel with the included ball and when it lands on a specific number whoever placed a bet on that number wins, simple right. The Roulette Drinking Game is a slight “spin” no pun intended on this, play with 2-8 people and everyone is assigned numbers that correspond to the numbers on the shot glasses, give the wheel a spin and if it lands on your number you down a shot. This game is great for parties, social gatherings and watching the football, it’s great fun and as the game goes on you’ll probably enjoy it even more, that could be that alcohol though. Although the game can be played by 2 we recommend at least 4 as you may end up just a bit too tipsy. The set includes the glasses, 2 balls and roulette wheel and is obviously only suitable for ages 18+. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a casino owner but just don’t have the funds to open up the next grand royal then consider the Roulette Drinking Game as a start, available from Amazon by clicking here
