In continuation of my alliterative titles....OH YEAH!!!
So, what's your favorite beverage (other than water) to take on cruise? Obviously, one has to take water. Beer takes up a lot of room, and to keep it cold, one has to take a lot of ice. Even with the good maxi coolers and using blocks of ice to cool down the cooler, 3 to 4 days is about the limit. Of course, drinking should only be done when anchored and by responsible adults. ***painfully obvious disclaimer***
Hot drinks like cocoa or apple cider, I have found, are good. The apple cider brands that come in the individual serving packages are quite excellent; spiking with alcohol is excellent (my input). .I just recently found a homemade cocoa recipe mix.
I recently downloaded a free ebook about dehydrating foods for backpacking or camping from Amazon for my ever ready kindle. It includes the above mentioned cocoa recipe. Also included is a way to make coffee from instant that makes it taste like fresh brewed.
I have found that true sailors "don't need no stinking ice". Mix that rum and coke right up without ice. Take a shot of bourbon. Ice is a luxury, and is generally reated as such. When using hard liquors, the space taken is SO small compared to beer.
I have a VIP coming to stay on the Owl the first part of July (another blog post, for sure). I need to figure out how to store wine the best way possible. Does anyone have any experience?
Dreaming the life and living the dream.
Stay safe and dry. Happy Sailing!
