1. Cointreau when I'm sipping an evening drink with my wife
2. 151 proof white rum mixed with lots :) of water and lime Crystal light to make a 'tropical ' drink.
3. Well's IPA in plastic 2 L bottle frozen before the trip when sharing with a group on a non-portage trip.( Some folks say that freezing beer ruins its taste but so far nobody's refused a cold one one day 2 or 3 on that account :D )

Yukon or Drambui with a fine Cuban Romeo #2

I have done the boxed wine thing with Italian meals, so Merlot is perfect.

Sake. Perhaps the nicest metabolism-friendly 15% drink around. Nice smooth buzz too. Prices go from dirt cheap ($17 for 1.5 liter Geikkakan) to expensive.

A nice smooth Port. It's great room temperature, I've also watered it down for a "red wine".

And Jack Daniels of course.

Not much better the cracking a tall boy at the top of silver peak,

that being said, some 40 creek with some water and a Monte cristo is also very good.

Discovered by accident. One full mickey of Capt. Morgans Lite Spiced Rum, one full packet of Tang. Top up with cold water in a 1 litre container. Shake and enjoy. First time on Welcome Lake the water was really cold and it tasted just like a creamsicle. Also apt to bring in sambucca with hot chocolate and tetra pacs of wine for the first steak dinner.

Drambuie is indeed useful to take the bad taste off the scotch! :D :lol:

Rye.Whatever is in a plastic bottle at the liquor store. I mix it with Tang(tripping is the only time I drink Tang) or Crystal Lite lemonade.
I also take 2 mini bottles of Drambuie for first and last night imbibing.

I also discovered a variation of this, only instead of water I used red wine. Quite the breakfast pick me up, I named it a Magnetewan Sunrise. :thumbup:

After being a long time Scotch drinker I rediscovered bourbon this year. Mug of warm (almost hot) water, 1 healthy shot of Woodford Reserve, spoonful of honey and finished with a small curl of butter.

Hot buttered bourbon, mmmm warms the bones.

Tequila and crystal light actually makes a really good margarita.

Hi

My drink of choice is guided the number of portages and their length.Thus 151 dark rum quickly becomes my drink .Concentrated alcohol equals less weight. 151 is an acquired taste You like or not ! My mix is cola or root beer on the first two days then powered lemonade.Their is some danger to high test rum. You'll get messed up real fast pounding this stuff back quickly.

Boxed wine and beer will present on some easy trips.

I have recently been introduced to pleasures of fine scotch.This is very nice on a cool evening around the campfire,warms the soul.No mix .

What quantities of alcohol do people plan to drink on a wilderness trip? I plan on 1 1/2 -2 oz of 151 rum on most wilderness trips.

Karl
