If you liked scotch (for example), 1/2 liter would go a long way.
A weight conscious choice, too.

I'm with both of them. It's a simple question of weight ratio.

There's a reason that when we pack booze in to the huts (which doesn't happen) it's liquor > wine > beer. At least by alcohol content.

Ah, but wine makes a good addition to the mushrooms and the rest of dinner. Pack light and add a few extravagances.

"Palcohol" = "Take your Pal wherever you go". Real stuff, powdered alcohol, amenable to tight spaces.

A shot of whiskey might serve one well in "setting the throat on fire" if it's winter camping one is talking about.

Let me know when I can get some powdered Cabernet, maybe a good vintage please. Would be most welcome.

Many decades ago, on a planned winter trip of the Carter range the first week of January, the snow was so deep that it took it took us until noon on the third day to reach the top of the first peak. From there it got a little better and we made it to the Imp shelter that night. The question was, would we continue the planned route, or bail out to Rt. 16. The vote was 4-2 to keep going.

The shelter was real nice after two nights in tents. The mood was good, perhaps helped by the consumption of all the alcohol we had brought.

In the morning, the vote was 6-0 to bail.... :-)
