A couple of months ago I posed a question on a popular cruising forum ( Whats your favorite cocktail after you anchor or tie up from a day on the water? ). My post had over 5000 lookers from around the World and about 120 replies so far. Just thought you might like to see some of the more interesting cocktail recipes. Cheers! G.

must show the anchor down by 16:30, or he will not approve it.Our
faves:1. Gin martini with olives, on the rocks. Just a drop of
3. Pimm’s Cup
4. An unnamed one which I made up, a
modified screwdriver — vodka, orange juice, cayenne pepper sauce.
remove any knickers, but to SPREAD THE JOY. (Our boat is s/v More Joy
Everywhere. Yes, sometimes the irony gets pretty thick.)
The Joy Juice
recipe is super top secret. Just kidding. Take a two quart pitcher. Add one
quart of juice. Like mango, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and/or papaya, and
include a dash of grenadine -pretty color. One quart alcohol. Various rums
(coconut, mango, dark, spiced – but I NEVER use bacardi paint thinner),
vodka (maybe flavored), and a few splashes of amaretto, and/or other liquors
that might be yummy, like chambord or grand marnier. Serve with a bit of ginger
ale, club soda, or sprite for the wimps who can’t take it straight up
a good agua de XXX whatever fruit i can find–limon, pina, mango, melon,
whatever–NO alcohol. and fresh water,not
mineralized bubble water..yukkkkkky
I have available.Morning in a beautiful quiet spot- a mimosa is a
beautiful way to start the day. Usually, on a mooring or dock because you
tend to get lazy even after one.
was rum with pineapple, touch of orange,mango and guava juices. With that much
vitamin C it’s no wonder cruisers are a healthy bunch!! Or a regular ol’
margarita- on rocks with salt. Back home recently I ordered a margy- they
brought the frozen stuff-ugh! Forgot they made those.
friends have started us doing a sort of margarita- only they use silver
tequila,triple sec and they squeeze in fresh grapefruit juice. It’s a refreshing
change & not so sweet.Of course, enjoying a beautiful sunset-Grand
Mariner in a crystal glass is perfect!
better than that.
