Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

Demerara Rum
Gin
Brandy
Red wine in bottles
White wine in boxes (usually take the bag out - stores better in the ice box)
Beer on ice with the white wine in the box
A dozen Heineken in the bilge for emergencies (upside down so the cans don't chafe thru)
Coke, Tonic, lemons & limes (the latter to prevent scurvy)

Leblon is a good easy to find Cacasa for around $19 (some of the cheep ones can be awful)

We often stock a bottle of either Agricole or Cacasa, Luxardo maraschino liqueur (vital ingredient in a Hemmingway daiquiri), Rum both light and dark, Wild turkey american honey, Campari, and ginger beer (for dark and stormy's)

Good tip on the Cachaca! Never had heard of it before. I'd love to find a rum I liked, it seems so much more appropriate.

If you never heard about Cachaça probably you never heard about "Caipirinha" and that is a pity. That is probably the drink that will put you "out of service" faster, specially if you drink it with a "Feijoada à Brasileira".

We use to do that each year in the summer with a lot of friends and I can tell you that the effects were...very good. We all know how to drink but nobody was able to go away all the afternoon. Nobody want anyway, everybody was happy.

Caipirinha recipe

9.6 points over 10. It cannot be bad

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

Jack Daniels splashed over ice, #1.
Rum is a pretty good staple also, seems to be more forgiving but when mixed with pineapple juice, aka painkillers, makes me a pee a lot. Sign of getting old I guess

Don't care for wine or beer but have been know to drink Coronas on a bitchin hot day

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Indeed! They are a wonder. I was introduced to them in Costa Rica in 1999. The bartenders wouldn't tell us what was in them until our last day there.

Paulo, you are Portuguese, correct? I drank a few caipirinhas in Lisbon and the bartenders there seemed to dismiss them as "a woman's drink."

Don't know about that. Never drunk a Caipirinha in a bar in Lisboa. The last one that I remember drinking in a bar was in Vicenza Italy. The bartender wanted to know if it was good. It was not so he asked me to do it properly (probably he thought I was a Brasilian). He agreed that mine was a lot better and we drank two or three (I made a jar) in the end I had trouble paying my first Caipirinha.

Woman's drink only if they put a small quantity of Cachaça and a lot of sugar. Just try about half cachaça half lime quartered and muddle well, then join ice and sugar to taste. It is not practical to do a cup of cachaça. It is much more easy to get it right doing a small jar and then who wants to drink only a cup of cachaça?

Couple bottles of Bailey's, but Just as a substitute for cream in my coffee, it's not really drinking when mixed with caffeine is it?

Y sure it is. I do like Bailey's round the cooler months.
Is there any good box wines available online?
Do yall shop on line or do you go to the beer store?

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I think all skippers should have their "signature drink". It doesn't matter if if comes in a box, out of a can, out of a bottle, etc.

But, the more unique and creative the drink, the more you can "own it" and give your guests something memorable.

For example: my good friend on whose boat I've crewed for extended trips. He always--repeat always--stocks a bottle of St. Brendan's Irish Cream (like Bailey's). He calls it the "Captain's Grog" and delivers all crew members their "daily ration" of "grog" each evening in port. We still talk about the grog years later!
