Mystery tea I found in a sealed container way in the back of the tea cabinet. Could be pumpkin, maybe?

Peet’s coffee. I really want to buy one of those Smokingpipes.com coffee mugs but they seem to be out of them.

After the hunt, a small shot of sloe gin; and then black Seaport coffee with bacon and a biscuit.

It was 31° in the blind this morning, but my grandson and his pup loved it. I'm getting almost a little too old for it, myself.

Black pepper-infused vodka. It's relatively disgusting, but it does include ethanol.

I think you should make a Bloody Mary with this, and then you will be happy.

Funny you should mention this....

I decided to try this recipe for Hot Buttered Rum, as a fun project. Tasting my first mug now.
https://www.liquor.com/recipes/hot-butt ... gs.Md30YrI

If anyone is tempted to try this, I suggest the following modifications:
1) Use half the spices called for. 1 tsp, instead of 2. Blend into a single stick of unsalted butter.

2) Cut way back on the clove, unless you really like clove. It overpowers easily. I substituted allspice.

3) Just to be clear: dissolve 1 part sugar into 2 parts brewed tea. You can use less, and it will still be plenty sweet.
Next time, I will cut the sugar in half.
1/2 cup sugar,
2 cups tea,
brewed with 4 tea bags.
Light brown sugar works fine, if you don't have demerara or turbinado sugar on hand.

4) Add plenty of the sweet apple tea. 3/4 ounce (1.5 tbs) per recipe is not enough. I add a full ladle, which is 1/2 cup.

I know this sounds awfully foo-foo.... but if a guy has enough spices on hand he might be tempted this experiment.

That was the original intent, but I had no tomato juice and I needed some ethanol on the cheap, i.e. no way I was opening a bottle of "the good stuff." Good catch, bro.

Need a Bloody Mary, but don't have any tomato juice?

Dig a carton of beef broth out of the panty and make yourself a Bull Shot.

You can enjoy the pepper vodka.

Bullshots? Didn't realize it was a driven shoot. I prefer port and brandy, anyway.
