Any drink with salt is good. I usually add salt to beer on a really hot day (so I get lots of salt ). And at night, half teaspoon of salt just savoured and swallowed keeps the cramps away.
Chances are you get more than enough salt with foods you eat, unless you are in a very hot climate and doing hard work which can deplete your blood salt levels. In such cases salt tablets will probably be required. Otherwise, the vinegar or sports drink works best without seriously raising your salt levels above what is normal.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

Hey there bones, a salt tablet doesn't do so well to rim a martini glass... Pass the shaker please.

This is a favorite cocktail thread.

True, true. I sometimes trip over my staff of Aesculapius.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

I'm a big fan of the Captain and Coke. I was a captain in the Army, and now of my boat. He's a captain. We have a lot in common!

Dark and Stormy is another fine drink. Come to think of it, I like all of the above mentioned libations too.

I've had Sailor Jerry Rum, it is good, and the price is right. There is also something similar. I think it is Admiral Nelson. Also good and a good deal.

Re: Favorite Cocktail

Putting lots of salt on the rim of you glass filled with margaritas takes care of the "not enough salt argument" Regarding water.......Hmmmm as hunter s thompson said - drink water? fish screw in it!

Aversion to water can be proven to be correct. read any label of Dickel bourbon it clearly states "waters for washing....Dickel's for drinkin'"

I you can't trust what you read on a bottle of bourbon - what the hell can you trust?

I guess my choice of cocktail depends where we are at anchor and what I have available.

Morning in a beautiful quiet spot- a mimosa is a beautiful way to start the day. Usually, on a mooring or dock because you tend to get lazy even after one.

In Mexico,the drink was rum with pineapple, touch of orange,mango and guava juices. With that much vitamin C it's no wonder cruisers are a healthy bunch!! Or a regular ol' margarita- on rocks with salt. Back home recently I ordered a margy- they brought the frozen stuff-ugh! Forgot they made those.

Recently, friends have started us doing a sort of margarita- only they use silver tequila,triple sec and they squeeze in fresh grapefruit juice. It's a refreshing change & not so sweet.

Of course, enjoying a beautiful sunset-Grand Mariner in a crystal glass is perfect!

Re: Favorite Cocktail

my favorite cockptail --for all my life--has been:


largest possible FRESH shrimps/prawns
clamato juice
fresh onion, diced small
fresh serrano chile, minced
fresh cucumber, diced
fresh garlic, minced

put all together into a container to eat.......yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

can substitute horse radish for serrano chile.....but then isnt as good.
