I love it. I can't wait for the bee balm to come in. I've always loved the smell of the leaves and figured there must be a way to use it, but never stumbled on a recipe.

I am afraid I will be the party pooper here. Enjoy alcohol at home (in moderation) but keep the stuff out of the woods.

i have dealt with far too many victims, living and dead, whose over consumption of booze lead them into bad situations.

As always, moderation in all things. When the day is done and you are done hiking for the day, a little responsible relaxation is fine. Enjoy camping responsibly.

Great article, Blast. I don't partake in alcohol when I'm out there because I always seem to have a little person to take care of, but a girl can dream of a more civilized life. wink

Rum has always been the drink of the canoe trippers going way back to the Voyageurs of the fir trade days.
i enjoy a bump in the evening tea or use a spot in the water i
use to rehydrate the freeze dry fruit at dinner.
some 30 years ago i learned a lesion the hard way.i thought if i took a high proof booze i could carry less and get the same
bang for the buck.i took that 101 proof rum with the black bat
[censored] i'm drunk.i landed on a small pine covered islet and to the sound of chattering red squirrels dozed off.woke up sometime later with a head that felt like it was full of sand and made camp early.
now it's just a normal jog at dinner to relax before sack time.
