Idea's for a warm drink...

Posted by BrandonA, Oct 11, 2010.

My wife and I camp a lot.  As the weekends cool off we have begun looking for a new warmer drink.  Although a Moscow Mule does make you feel warm we were looking for something that is actually warm.  A Tom and Jerry is the only other drink I could think off that is easy to pull off camping.  Thanks for the suggestions.

Unoriginal, but bourbon and hot cider is tough to beat.

I have actually never heard of that combo.  Sounds great though.  Cidar can sit on the fire all night and keep warm and I love bourbon... a lot.  Thanks!

Bourbon and cider is certainly good, the Blue Blazer sounds like a hell of a show, hot grog works, and even cocoa with a serious dollop of brandy can be both good and have seemingly aphrodisiacal characteristics (how do you think Moctezuma kept his energy up with that harem he had, though in his case he used a tequila relative? Obviously those concerns kept him from thinking more clearly on Cortez's aims), but frankly in terms of functionality and refreshing warmth off the mountainside, whether climbing or skiing/boarding, hot mulled wine has hit the spot more often than anything else.

Careful you don't burn your armhairs off on that experiment, Brandon... ;-)

As a Scot, you can't beat a hot toddy to warm the cockles of your heart.  Whisky (by which I mean scotch, obviously) with a teaspoon of honey and dribble of lemon juice.  Used medicinally here to ward off cold, flu, pneumonia, anthrax...  You can't be too careful.

@luca chevalier  The recipe for a "Friendship Cup" you suggested has one small problem for those of us who do not live in Europe.  One of the ingredients is "a cup of Genepy"  The recipe for which is provided and requires 20 plants of Artemisia glacialis - otherwise called Glacier Wormwood and similar to the ingredient used in Absinth.  I just don't think I'll be able to find that here in Texas.  

My vote for a hot drink would be Buttered Rum.  Mix butter and brown sugar and add to a couple of jiggers of rum in a mug.  Fill with hot water and lean back and relax.

LadyGold, sounds like a very-slightly uptown version of the hot grog I referred to above... ;-)

Now that it is Friday, and another workday doesn't loom for two more days, I'm going to give all of these a try.  Thanks again everyone!
