My dad is in law enforcement, so this is something I asked him about (also, google is my friend!)--there is nothing illegal about bringing sealed bottles of wine (or any other alcohol) over state lines as long as it is for personal consumption (so not massive quanities!) and out of reach of the driver. I usually fly and just have a bottle of wine packed in my luggage or a few single serve plastic bottles. I'll admit I am in California already, so no crossing of state lines, but even if I was flying to Disney World, I don't think it would be a problem.

I live near the wine country and people buy bottles of wine here all the time and take it home with them from vacation. I don't know what law you are talking about that would present a problem with this.

The OP is specifically referring to transporting liquor across state lines into Utah, which IS illegal per Utah state law.

I thought people were suggesting she bring wine in the vehicle.

ETA: I went back and read the whole thread and a poster was saying she should bring the alcohol with her FROM Utah into CA. The OP expressed that she knew there was a law that prohibited bringing liquor across the border INTO Utah but she was afraid about leaving also. According to those websites, I don't see anything against that.

Can anyone recommend a drink they've had with grand mariner? Why they don't sell those insanely great Grand Marnier Orange Slush from WDW, in Epcot, I'll never know. Now that is a great drink. There's a reason the kiosk always has a line!

I had a great drink at the Hearthstone Lounge last year. I think it was the Ultimate Long Island Ice Tea. I'm a huge fan of Long Island and this was one was great - not too much coke or sweet n sour. To avoid the sugar I would ask for no sweet n sour and for them to use lime/lemon combo. Just one is all you need!

Oh my, so sorry! I think I got this mixed up with another alcohol thread! But this one is very fun!

Oh gcatt you are so droll. That post was good for a giggle. Re Grand Marnier the liqueur, I think it is best when imbibed fairly simply. I like it straight up or on the rocks or as a Grand Marnier/tonic or as liqueur added to coffee.

Gotta agree with whomever said Napa Rose, best cocktails on property. Last Word is a great drink, but the bartenders will wow you more than you think. Give them persmission to make whatever. The Bum's Rush is not on the menu, but you'll be asking for a 2nd.

Also, the tequilla daisy at Carthay is superb.

Lastly, Trader Sam's as everyone has basically said, is a great spot.

...like if it's within arms-length the driver might be SO tempted to break it open at a stoplight.

I heard that technically it's a violation of tax laws, although there doesn't seem to be any means to pay taxes. Everything is taxed through the state as the only legal importer of alcoholic beverages into the state.

There are only a few means for the average citizen to bring alcohol into Utah without violating those laws. There's the federal limit of duty free alcohol brought directly into Utah from a foreign trip. Clearing customs in Los Angeles and then transiting to Utah doesn't count. Then there's inheriting alcoholic beverages, although I hear that requires state approval.

That doesn't mean it doesn't happen. i've heard of certain federal employees in Utah who regularly brought in beer from across state lines. They were subject to their own federal law enforcement when they got back to their posts, and let's just say they weren't terribly interested in enforcing Utah's laws on importing alcohol.
