Toddies abound, but a better one we have not tasted. Try this one on your mother-in-law.
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 lemon or lime
1/2 stick cinnamon
4 whole cloves
1 1/2 oz bourbon
Throw in everything but the bourbon and gently heat to near boil. At the peak of aromatic splendor, add the whiskey and turn off the heat. Swirl a bit and serve.
Now that you're a Jetboil owner, you've got a great excuse for quick hot lunches on the trail. Hot soup is the very definition of instant gratification. There's plenty to choose from at your grocery store. It's also remarkable what you can do with a bouillon cube (or Ramen noodles) and one or two fresh ingredients or spices.
1-2 cups water
1-2 chicken, beef, or veggie bouillon cubes
1 package of Ramen noodles with flavor packet
chopped onion or scallion
chopped up beef jerky
can of shrimp or clams
Put water, bouillon cube(s), and add-in(s) into cooking cup. Turn on heat, bring to boil, and turn off. Most excellent lunch.
