Go Dash Dot – Bags & Booze

Go Dash Dot has been serving up the most fashionable and functional bags for the woman-on-the-go, but a girl wants a drink every now and then, too right? Especially this year. To cool off during what is likely to be a scorching summer, the boutique brand has created artisanal cocktails that perfectly complement three of its most popular styles.

“After this winter and spring, we all need a cocktail!” says Go Dash Dot founder Hannah Fastov, with a laugh. “People have shown enormous patience, resolve and courage, so we wanted to add to that an element of fun. These cocktails are creative, whimsical and best of all delicious, and the perfect way to celebrate the summer.”

Fastov and her team looked to their bags as inspiration for ingredients and color and went to work creating exciting elixirs that bring cool to the hot season.

For its White Easy Tote, the team envisioned something fruity and refreshing: the “Skinny Bitch.” Made with 1 ounce of pineapple juice, two 1-ounce shot of vodka, ice, soda water and a pineapple wedge for garnish, it’s the perfect antidote for a steamy afternoon or evening.

Create your own Margaritaville with the “Minty Marg,” a creative twist on the classic inspired by Go Dash Dot’s popular Mint Chip Maya Backpack. Start with 2 cups of white grape juice, ¼ cup of tequila, ¼ triple sec, dash of lime juice, 2 cops of spinach, 4 cups of ice and fresh mint garnish and voila — a drink even Jimmy Buffett would savor.

Finally, it might look blue, but you won’t feel blue after imbibing the “Woman Warrior,” modeled after Go Dash Dot’s blue Denim Puffle. Hear her roar with 1 and 1/3 oz of vodka, 1/3 oz of Blue Curacao and 1/3 oz of lime juice

Go Dash Dot was founded in 2016 by Fastov, a fashion entrepreneur who has previously worked in product development and merchandising with Brooks Brothers and Rag and Bone. She sought to create a stylish line of bags for women that could serve multiple purposes: work, social engagements, gym, travel and other activities in a busy woman’s life. “It had to be fashionable, function and timeless” was the mission, Fastov said. She and her small team went to work creating several styles, including totes, backpacks, crossbodies and the signature “puffle,” which she imagined as a re-imagined duffel worn as a hand or shoulder bag or crossbody. The bags are thoroughly unique, featuring a separate compartment for footwear, padded laptop section, a snap in snap out pouch that can be worn as a crossbody or belt bag, laundry pouch, cell phone pocket, tons of additional pockets and compartments, and completely machine washable. They also come in a variety of colors. “The Go Dash Dot woman is active, ambitious, and fun loving. One adventure leads to the next and she needs a bag that can keep up with her,” Fastov says.
