The perfect sailing beverage

Ron,
I couldn''t agree more: there''s nothing better than a hot, steaming cup of coffee after a hard day beating against weather. Now all I need is some relaxing music and a good cruising book...

How about a "Sea Breeze"? Followed with a "Searchlight". Then an "Anchor Steam". Then you could finish the evening with some "Sex on the Beach".

I learned this concoction from a Past Commodore ot the Storm Trysail Club. He called it "Honey Rum":

In a pitcher, pour in liberal ammounts of Myer''s dark rum. Then desolve in a fair good dollop or two of clover honey, stiring well. Add lemon juice, sample over and over adjusting the ingredients ''til it tastes "Right". (Whatever that is) Serve over ice in mugs. It also works warmed up for the colder months.

Many thanks to Bennet Fisher, SV Alliance for the careful guidance he offered in mixing this potion.

This is the same concoction (sometimes with whiskey if you''re out of rum) used by us southerners for a very bad case of laryngitis...works like a charm everytime...well, let''s put it this way, after a few swigs you don''t care if you can talk or not.

Kokopuff,

In addition to curing laryngitis, don''t forget the medicinal value of said concoction for snake bites and other such infirmities. ''Tis the southern thing to add honey and lemon to alcohol and voila -- it''s MEDICINE!!!

Sometime I''ll tell the story about my Great Uncle Roy, who got into a wee bit of trouble many moons ago selling an elixir of his own making. He called it Uncle Roy''s Stump Water. Cured whatever ailed you. Those were the days.

Gosling''s Black Seal Rum over ice is the official drink of the SV TRYSAIL.

Beer is also important. Being a vegatarian it replaces meat as the fourth food group.

Sailormitch,
Yes! And we shouldn''t leave out the wonders it does as a treatment for mental illness! (oh, wait...do I have that backwards...maybe it''s the ''cause of that one...)oh, what the heck...maybe, I''ll go home and test it. :-)
