For anyone who's hit
the airport bar to quell the pain and degradation of airport security, here's
some good news. You CAN take your own alcohol through TSA security if you
follow the same rules for other liquids.
Travel blogger The Travel Ninja
discovered this loophole after talking to a TSA supervisor. As long as your
mini booze bottles are 3oz or less, you can stuff as many as possible in a 1
quart zip-lock bag and bring them on through! They sell for about $2.50 in
liquor stores but airports will charge up to $7 for the same amount.
It's illegal to drink your own alcohol aboard the plane, so you'll want
to get your buzz on before boarding.
