What's your campfire Tipple?

Image

The fire's warming and friends are just settling that delicious meal and are ready for bed. My favourite night cap is a full and flavoursome liqueur muscat to round out the night. The one in my little flask is always a Seppelt's '65 liqueur Muscat... always goes down well for deep restful sleep. :)

I don't do campfires. Closest I get to a night-time tipple is soup or hot chocolate.

Hot choc always goes down well.

Ive certainly taken the odd flask of single malt wiskey away but atm im more focused on getting a bit fitter and healthier so im off booze alltogether, home or away. Tho ive been close numerous times over the passed 3months while ive had the dam flu (for 3months straight) thats going around to kill the germs with a bottle of scotch or at least try!

A tot of Bombay Sapphire always goes down well.

But for cold nights my old fishing companion can't be bettered - green ginger wine.

Well, the Bombay Sapphire is best with tonic water, but I don't haul that, so a splash of plain water is fine.
But the green ginger wine goes straight down. :) It warmed me on many winter nights spent jew fishing into the small hours.

Jameson Irish Whiskey is a very smooth and easy 'snifter' that is another fav of mine.
For non-scotch drinkers often a very pleasant and surprised look appears on their faces at their first swig... :mrgreen:

If it hasn't been opened and was stored in stable conditions it should be. High alcohol content is the preservative, just really needs to remain sealed

Unlikely to be dangerous, just very viscous and rather "intense" taste, shall we say. If cork sealed, the alcohol can still evaporate and you will eventually be left with a very sticky sludge. I don't think I'd be saving it for a total of 42 years though. But I like a good port.

Be careful the cork.doesnt disintegrate..my grandparents bought a bottle of sealed port they held till my 21st. It was stored in ideal.conditions. on opening the cork disintegrated and pretty much ruined the drink :)

Yes. No cork is guaranteed to last for ever.

If its going into a flask may as well get the $5 a litre muscat I use for soaking prunes. (In jar, cover with muscat. Closest I get to making preserves.) If you an find OnePlanet (not the same people who do camping gear!) 250mL and 750mL tetrapaks its worth knowing a cold freezer will freeze the white so you have a cold pack.... white or red, much lighter than glass. A couple of WA wineries put out the pet bottles which are apparently used in Europe by some wineries but they didn't catch on - pity, seemed fine to me.

All depends what type of seal,if it's a stopper type of seal it should be OK,if the cork is flush, melt some wax onto the cork, it should stop the cork from breaking down. :) .....Congratulations are in order Neil,21 year old port would not last 5 minutes around here :D ....
