Boat Drinks

If you indulge what is your go too boat drink/drinks?

In the winter I drink lots of good IPA's and get fat. Come summer I drink Corona Light for the most part. At the dock we whip up some Painkillers (spiced rum, pineapple juice, little orange juice, cream of coconut, shaken with ice, and garnished with nutmeg).  If no painkillers than rum and coke. Mmmmm. Looking forward to that first painkiller of the season after 6 months of hibernation.

    When I was still able to drink I'd have vodka and Sparkling Ice.  I came up with the Banana Cream Pie for the admiral.  It's banana rum and Jones cream soda.

    At first my boat was like a floating bar, top shelf vodka, rums, tequilas and all the mixers to go along with them. Then I realized that was a pain in the butt and it was somehow assumed since I owned the boat I must also be the bar tender by default and all those different mixers took up a ton of room on my little 24 footer, not to mention the trash issue with a zillion empty mixer cans and bottles. Then I discovered premixed cocktails from Bacardi, Smirnoff and a few other brands. They actually make some tasty stuff and it won't break the bank. I just grab a bunch of those and load up on ice and red solo cups and I am good to go. I don't even allow beer on my boat, takes up too much space and then empty bottles or cans is a huge problem...I'm sorta a neat freak and can't stand to see a mess or clutter on my boat.

    Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. Their Orange Shandy was my go to summer brew, but they discontinued it. The admiral drinks hard ciders. Late last summer I was tired of beer and I got a 12 pack of Mike's Hard Black Cherry Lemonade. It went down way too easy. They will be on my boat this summer for something different.

    Partlowr, that's pretty hard core, no beer on your boat. How much room could a cooler full of beer take and as for the trash, just throw it overboard LOL. My preference is Coors Light in cans or alum bottle. No glass due to safety and the weight of your trash. Many in our crowd at the lake prefer moonshine. Not the mass produced stuff sold in some stores but the real stuff made in a rural barn. Not my cup of tea but is rather popular. We keep some on our boat for guests.

    Ice ice cold beer-miller, corona and Guinness for the spring, fall or night time at the dock.  When I'm out on river I go the water down stuff like 64 so I can enjoy a cold one but not go over the limit.  Jameson while at the dock along with some decent rum.  Big fan of the fun iced drinks, gives you that beach summer time feel.

    Jme097, I'm with you on the cheap stuff.  Still in my 20s so feel I can get away with it.  I am usually purchasing the booze for my guest(mostly family) so I stay on the cheap side. Can't be drinking Jameson all day long in 90 degree heat.

    Right with you for the Summer Shandy.  Bacardi and Diet coke too.

    For whatever reason.. and I know I'm going to take a beating on this one... Bacardi Arctic Grape rum and diet Mountain Dew usually makes it onto my boat as well.  Sounds gross, but it tastes like you are drinking a grape Jolly Rancher.  4 parts Grape rum to 1 part diet Dew and you are good to go! (and REALLY feelin' it after just two red cups full).  ;)  -=Mike G.

    Mai Tai's it is!!  I usually premix a gallon for a big weekend or long trip, otherwise a quart will do a small raft up good! :)  I also keep different flavors of bud's lime 'a' ritas.

    makin me thirsty, bud lite, coors lite, bush lite, wines, after 4-5 oclock, switch to bacardi and coke. partlowr is wright 30-40 emty beer cans take up room. have had to go back to the dock to discard a bag of them, and start all over. At islands-raft up there is allways plenty of moonshine made in the same barn as sixpack. jello shots, margarita's, cocanut rum, pineapple rum, nothing like a ice cold beer on a hot day. or any day.

    Jameson, jack, honey jack, bud light tequila and a few mixers. Occasional 2-3 bottles of pink Catawba wine. Maybe Bloody Mary for the rougher mornings.

    The younger guys know this one Jaeger Bombs. A shot glass full of Jaeger dropped into a mug of icey beer - downed!
