so what do you stow in the flask for the winter rides ? what do you imbibe during the festive season?...enduramil's eggnog references of late got me thinking...(btw: you won't find any nog in my fridge for the holidays, the Antiguans must shake their heads when you try to drown some yummy rummy in that nog...your colonization is showing, Scot ! btw: you are of scottish ancestry, no ?)
one of my faves is krupnik. my pops used to make his own out of grain spirits (spyrytus) that the relatives, both young and old who were visiting would mule over to canada for us. you can find the ready made stuff at the LCBO.
i love me a good stout for the winter, the brooklyn black chocolate stout is something i stocked up (to the point of emptying the shelf at the local LCBO), its cost per ethanol volume is low, and has dual use as a chain lube. Its pretty yummy.
