Oh how I love this tread...

Drink is my work, and I bring my work home often! I'm a liquor & wine distributor!

My favorite on my boat though is my rum punch:
1 part Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
1 part Malibu Coconut Rum
1 part orange Juice
1 part pineapple juice
1 part cranberry juice.
Should be a coral color when mixed!

This takes me back.. My Methodist Nana loved these at Christmas time. Somehow if it was during the holidays and disguised as a sweet treat it didn't count as "Alcohol".

Man did she get 'happy' on those tall steaming glass mugs...

Re: Favorite Cocktail

Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's Zombie recipe, tracked down from Don the Beachcomber's coded notebooks, and published in his book, Beambum Berry's Sippin Safari. Check out the recipe here here or buy the book, which has many great drinks. Berry's Zombie takes a couple of hours if you start from scratch, but it's worth it, and you can make a large batch and store it for a little while. It pays to make your own falernum and cinnamon infusion.

Confession: on the boat I'm more likely to just drink the rum, neat.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

White wine sangria (requires ice and lots of it!!!)

!Big bowl,

A few bottels of white wine (not chardonnay - use chablis or sauvignon blanc)
Triple Sec
Oranges
Limes

Cut the oranges and limes in quarters and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Toss the squeezed fruit into the bowl.

Add the cold white wine.
Taste your way with the Triple Sec. You don't want the sangria to be too sweet.

Add a lot of ice.

Only problem with this recipe is that you can almost never make enough.

Carsten, Chablis is made from Chardonnay grapes.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

Yeah but generally Chablis is a lighter wine, Chardonnay tends to be heavy.

Usually the Chardonnay labeled wines are more oaked and tend to be heavy. Many Chablis are fermented in stainless steel tanks and therefore taste fresher and/or lighter.
Maybe it is time to start a "best wine for for cruising thread"

Re: Favorite Cocktail

great thread. found this as I was looking for a 12V blender to make frozen drinks. However, very few of the 145 posts had these.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

Good rum & fresh coconut water. Perfect. No blender required, just a sharp machete.

Yum. Just a couple of ice cubes for me though...a true sipping rum. We use Ron Botran 12 year as our mixing rum...much less expensive, but still quite good.
