Dave - we may never know the precise number of closet ropeys in the RvMdom. Some will remain in the closet, some will add them and not disclose, and some may shed what they have in order to carry other things. The mutation process is ongoing like journey we mutants are on... And the party never ends.

(0.25) oz Honey Water,
(1.5) oz Orange Juice,
(0.75) oz Lemon Juice,
[Dash] Bitters,
[Dash] Orange Bitters

Shaker with ice - pour up or on rocks. I prefer the rocks.

Fresh squeezed juices only!
Prepare honey water ahead of time and keep on hand - warm equal parts honey and water (or 2 parts water to honey) your call to taste.

Orange bitters are available on Amazon or elsewhere. It's a great drink!
Way too complicated and time consuming for me.. I get impatient taking the time to put in the rocks and water once the scotch is poured...

If I really want to live it up I use Ginger Ale instead of water....

Time consuming.... Hmmm. Not sure that will fit in the RVM Lexicon. You can always let PF mix one for you.

I have almost quit drinking adult beverages which makes mixology kind of a journey for me. Have posted about this before - lots of single malt will have to go on the road with us. I posted this pre-holiday inventory pic before - and every drop is still in the bottle. Wayne has put dibs on it - but think I will hold on to it for our first curiosity of mutants.

Several years back we bought a Bartender's Bible and lots of bottles to try out different mixed drinks. I still prefer Jim Beam & Coke--call me "low maintenance."

Back in the day when I did occasionally enjoy, my adult beverage of choice was a margarita on the rocks, no salt, sitting beside a delicious plate of really good chicken fajitas.

Alas, for me times have changed. Surgery on the digestive system and current medications have put adult beverages on the NO NO list And now the fajitas just don't taste as good.

I now have to imbibe vicariously thru others. So all of you that enjoy an occasional, or more than occasional drink, have one for me. I'll just blink back the tears while you describe the experience.

The perfect mixed drink! First and foremost use your home water, if you drink bottle water at home, use it but if your tap water is what you drink that's the stuff to use. Bring water to a rolling boil while getting a large pitcher from cabinet along with bag of sugar.

This is the tricky part so take notes if needed, take 3 family size Lipton's tea bags and place in empty pitcher, pour boiling water in over tea bags until covered and let steep, set, brew,soak for about 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and add sugar like sugar is good for you, stir to dissolve sugar and add more if needed. Finish filling pitcher with home water.

Fill glass full of ice, pour brewed sweet tea over ice, set in shade with a breeze blowing on you and enjoy!

Huntnski,

I add a couple of sprigs of mint cut from the herb garden, and maybe some orange slices. And not so much sugar. My MIL (and therefore DH) drink tea so sweet I feel like I need to brush my teeth after having a glass!

Big iced tea drinkers here to and Annie is the sun tea queen in these parts. She uses a mixture of tea bags - favorite blend now is 4 bags Luizianne tea and 4 bags of Lipton White Tea Island Mango & Peach. No sugar added. The Lipton also has orange leaves and lemongrass in it. If you drive through a CG and see sun tea brewing on a picnic table, it might be us!
