Novelty or necessity? Not sure how well balanced these ski poles would be after a couple nips off the fire water but they have already raised $9,739 towards The WhiSki Poles crowdfunding goal of $40K so there is certainly interest in the product:

“WhiSki Poles™ hold approximately 8 fluid ounces each, or a pint per a pair. If you fill your poles with a liquid that may freeze, please leave ample room for your liquid to expand (we recommend 3 inches from the top). FYI: Water freezes at 32 degrees F (0 degrees C) and 70-proof alcoholic beverages freeze at -2 degrees F (-19 degrees C), windchill does not matter. Each pole also weighs approximately 0.5 lbs when empty, or 0.9 lbs when filled. Most skiers don’t notice the additional weight added to the pole when on the slopes, as the poles were designed to be super light so the added weight of liquid shouldn’t be an issue.”

In case you were wondering the ski poles sold for $69 come in a variety of sizes and ship in January 2018:
