Travel Cocktail Kit

I recently returned from a six day trip to Georgia for a friend's graduation from Army bootcamp. While there I had a craving for a nicely made cocktail. Figuring that I could obtain all the items needed to make an Old Fashioned I set out on a quest. I was, after some serious hunting, able to find all the things I needed and for the next few nights enjoyed some tasty libations. This whole process got me thinking though. Wouldn't it be nice to have a Travel Cocktail Kit made up that could simply be tossed in my bag when I go on trips? All that would be required at that point would be to get some base spirit and some ice and I'd be set.

So here is what I'm thinking will be included in the kit:

Glass dropper bottle of Orange Bitters (Likely Regan's)
Glass dropper bottle of Angostura Bitters
Glass dropper bottle of Peychaud's Bitters
Spoon
Knife
Sugar

Any other suggestions for things I should include? Anyone else have a similar kit?
