True Gin Martini
3 1/2 parts Gin (Tanquarey or Hendricks)
1/2 parts Vermouth (Martini & Rossi)
2 olives and 1 onion
Serviced in an ice cold martini glass (if it isn’t a martini glass, then we don’t bother)
Or if the above is not available, then a glass of Zinfandel or Merlot wine (again in a real glass)

Boring as it may seem – water. DH began to try wines in the last couple of years, so we sometimes bring that to drink with supper. If my tummy is in a good mood, I get a half glass or so of wine.
We cook with wine and beer at home, so some of the stew or chili we take (frozen) on a trip may have one of them as an ingredient.
We don’t drink a lot of soda, we may have one or two per trip. I don’t drink diet versions (aspertame triggers headaches, Others are either unpalatable or can cause other issues), so I’ll save my calorie allotment for other things.
for mass production-type beers, i’ve become a big fan of Blue Moon variety packs.
Sam Adams and Gordon Biersch variety packs had been my favorites but Blue Moon is doing some interesting things now.
i prefer different types of beers, over the same kind over and over again.
Variety is the Spice of Life! ;D
Coffee (lots, black, made in a French press) upon waking up, flavored seltzer with breakfast and midday (fave is Seagram’s citrus and peach, a bit more spendy than others, usually have a coupon on the bottle though, but any flavored seltzer is great), and craft beer later on (Troegs Sunshine Pils is my absolute favorite, followed by Yards Cape Good Hope IPA, Victory Headwaters, Sierra Nevada Torpedo or Pale Ale, 16 Mile Inlet IPA). If I’m in the mood for sweet drinks, I enjoy all flavors of Mike’s hard lemonades and Barefoot Bubbly pink moscato.
As far as nonalcoholic, I love Trader Joe’s Margarita Mix – it tastes great mixed with nonalcoholic flavored seltzer (‘mocktails’), as well as with the usual tequila, triple sec, etc.
COFFEE!!!! With 4 short people running around on our site when we camp DH and I definately drink our share. Then we like to move on to craft beers and sample different ones in addition to DH’s homebrew ale. And for a night cap I like to snuggle by the fire with some 12 year Jameson.
recently. at a local BBQ festival, I tried a new one ( to me) and the DW and I really liked it.
ANGRY ORCHARD cider ale! the original has just enough hint of apple to make it taste amazing. they also offer a crisp apple, which is a lot sweeter.
