Re: Liquid libations

-caipirinha (the national drink of Brazil, made with sugar cane rum ("cachaca"- Leblon is about the only brand I can find,) muddled limes and sugar
-caipirosca: same as above but with vodka if you can't find Leblon.
-slightly dirty classic martini with Plymouth gin (this takes a while to perfect)
-Don Q dark rum or Bacardi 151 with freshly squeezed orange juice (perfect for the beach in a big thermos)
-Pink Panty Pulldowns: pink lemonade, vodka and Sierra Mist. Not for me but I like the effect.
-Great Lakes Beer, especially Christmas Ale with a cinnamon rim on the glass during the holidays.

pirate Re: Liquid libations

Actually Leading Seamen and below got 2 parts water 1 part rum..
Petty Officers and Chiefs got 50/50... Guess they were considered 'seasoned drinkers' by then..
Officers had a drinks cabinet with whatever they fancied..

So the saying or custom of not drinking before "the sun was over the yard arm" comes from that time as well is that right?
And the yard arm was at the top of the mast which meant about midday .... Am I right?

Re: Liquid Libations

I have been looking for a good Grog recipe for about a year now. A good friend of mine owns the Willamette Queen Sternwheeler in Salem Oregon and he serves up a "Super Secret" Captain Richards Grog... It is supposed to be for 2 but I never get around to sharing. It has 4 different Rum's in it and....well I don't remember what else. (setting my GPS to pete33458 and 40 to 50 varieties of rum on hand)

Re: Liquid Libations

For those who boat in the Northwest waters of Washington State beware the fines and jail time for being caught running your boat WUI has been recently changed. The Law now has some real teeth fine of $5,000-possible jail time and refusal to be tested has stiff penalty. There is also some talk of probable danger of not being able to cross boarder with a boat to Canada with previous DUI or WUI(boat).

Wow, we are all talking about delicious drinks. Not getting drunk.

Re: Liquid Libations

He has a point though, and a good one. It doesn't take much at all to be legally impaired, but it can really ruin your day

Absolutely, but boats are just like cars as far as driving under the influence. No one should be drinking and driving.

This thread is all about having great drinks at the dock or at anchor.

No one here wants to get cocked and drive their boat that way.

Re: Liquid Libations

Just trying to warn people about the new rules and the aggressive stance law enforcement is intending to take in our area. So if you have been enjoying your favorite libation at anchor before we start our motors we should consider what our blood alcohol level might be. Yes no different than a car except law enforcement thinks too many boaters believe otherwise thus the new laws and attitude.

Re: Liquid Libations

Climate and availability drives my choice. In the PNW we have ample access to quality beers. We also have temperatures conducive to home brewing. Bourbon takes the chill off and ain't too bad while sitting under the stars in the summer either... so for me that would be Makers, Bullet, Bookers, Corner Creek, or George Dickel. That said, I could see myself sipping more and more Tequila and Rum as I move south... and I know I'll enjoy learning from the locals.

I have seen a lot of River Patrol activity in the Columbia River from Willamette River around Kelly Point to Government Island.

Re: Liquid Libations

For me, it's just beer. Quantity is generally preferred over quality, I am not a beer snob (and no offense intended to those who value quality beer) and find the quality of the people I drink with leaves a longer lasting impression on me than does the purity of the beer.
