Today I’m going to share a wilderness survival tip that you can bet they didn’t teach you in Boy Scouts.
In the woods nothing keeps you warmer, happier, and feeling more alive than Bushmoka. Although it may sound like something your Yiddish grandmother wears, Bushmoka is second only to whiskey as the holiest of holy hunting camp drinks.
How To Make Bushmoka
- Start a campfire if you can. If you can’t, do what I do and use Zip.
- Fill a coffeepot with water from the nearest creek. Better yet, send a rugged mountain man to do it for you.
- Put the coffeepot on the most roaring part of the campfire. If you have a grate on top of the fire, great. If not nestle the pot in a flat flaming spot.
- Wait for the water to boil. Depending how good of a fire you built in Step 1 this can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
- Take the boiling pot off the fire. Unless you have evolved a burn-proof coating on your hands make sure to wear gloves.
- Forget your inner coffee snob and add whatever coffee grounds you happen to have. If you like your coffee with a kick use at least 4 big spoonfuls. If you don’t have a good relationship with caffeine use less.
- Let it all brew together for 3-4 minutes.
- Slowly add a cup of cold creek water to your pot. This will make all the grounds sink to the bottom so you don’t end up with a mouthful of coffee grit.
- Pour the fresh pot of coffee into individual mugs. Better yet if the individual mugs are labeled with fun names.
- Stir in hot chocolate powder to taste.
Warning: Bushmoka is extremely addictive. Drink with caution.
