Re: Boat Drinks

Beer suitable for "gluten free" - Vailima in Samoa or Corona.
Rum & Brandy are good options also.

LOL. My concern as people get drunker mistakes about the liquid source can be made. Though I could see how it could be used for a great joke on people. When you explain that you've been on the water so much you've turned into that Kevin Costner character in Waterworld and can drink your own urine. Using this bag and some liquid like Ice Tea you could show them.

Re: Boat Drinks

Gin & Tonic. We make our own tonic (and other soft drinks) with the SodaStream.

Re: Boat Drinks

We really prefer beer in glass bottles but the trash issue brings us back to cans that can be crushed, so canned beer, boxed wine and rum--preferably 'The Kraken'.

Re: Boat Drinks

Amapola,

I am fascinated by the sodastream. How do you turn the soda water into tonic?

Re: Boat Drinks

My blood pressure's a bit on, so I'm now drinking more healthy. Sorrel tea for me!

Re: Boat Drinks

We never drink on the hook and not much at the dock either.

Alas, I like drinking local things, when such exist: rum in the West Indies, Jerez in Cadiz, Glog in Stockholm, etc.

In RSA we drank some local wine and I loved it, my mate not quite so. In NZ we drank Grappetizer (similar to Appletiser) and in AUS we drank tea and coffee (imagine how dry it is there).

There was great beer in Papeete and in the Mascarenas.

A good drink is a good thing, I think.

Dark and Stormy's

The cheaper the rum the better!!!

I keep cases of bitter ginger beer on board for those who want to go over to the 'dark side'.

Re: Boat Drinks

What do you know... a thread about drinks and BoatMan is not here

For us it is wine, G&T's, Cuba Libre's, Painkillers, "43", Dramboui, Mohitos, Margaritas, Tsao Tsjing, Presidente, coffee, grappa, cognac, scotch, single malt and that is about the half I know without looking in the secret cabinets ah port, sherry, martini, wodka, limocelli...

Never fear.... 'Tanqueray' is here...
As the Panama tag say's... + tonic...
Havana Club 12anos +.... straight or with dry ginger.
Stoly.... straight out of the freezer.
Soberano.
And a Galliano on the rocks after a good meal is magic...
Beers just a sweat supplement..

Boatman, I note you are not advocating minimast judging by your recommendation of ice and freezers.
Naturally the beer must be cold.
