ISO Good Drink for Ski Trip

Ok, so I'm going on a ski trip to the Poconos next week where I will have a condo to myself. Any ideas on what sorta drink would be nice to mix? I would like to have an idea so I know what kind of liquor to buy and take with me.

I'm not looking for a warm drink, just a nice one to have by myself during the evenings or to share with any "snow bunnies" I meet up there.

What do you like to drink? Wine, some kinds of hard booze like gin, or bourbon, or something like a nice liquor such as Fra Angelica (?sp).

It is your weekend. Give us a clue what you like.

When skiing we always used to make Rocket Fuel. It was a big hit with the ladies. It is just hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps.

Ah man, they are too easy.

Makes one high ball:

1 oz Gin, Vodka, White Rum, Trip Sec (those are the 4 clears)

3 oz lemon mix

1/2 oz Tequila

splash of coke

Practice on one, you can change the sourness or sweetness by changing the amounts of lemon mix or coke.

Rocket Fuel? Just what kind of ladies did you share this drink with?
We called them "Snugglers".... for a kinder, gentler, errrr.... nation

I know you said you didn't want 'warm' drinks, but this is so simple there is no excuse for not having it in your arsenal

Bottled apple cider or apple juice
Vodka, Rum, Apple Jack or Apple Schnapps
Cinnamon sticks

Mix the proportions to your liking, add a cinnamon stick, put in the microwave for a minute (not longer than 1). Stir and enjoy.
