And if, by some remote possibility, you don’t catch any barramundi or crabs, here’s some old bush drink recipes to console you.

IRISH CRÈME
1 cup of whisky
1 ¼ cups of fresh cream (canned cream will do)
2 large table spoons of chocolate syrup
3 eggs
2/3 can of sweetened condensed milk.
Beat the eggs. Add all the other ingredients except the cream and stir well. Add the cream and lightly stir into the whisky mixture. Great to sip while you talk about the ones that got away!

CRÈME de MENTHE
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 cup of brandy (more if you prefer)
1 teaspoon of green food colouring
1 teaspoon of peppermint flavouring.
Boil the sugar and water together for 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Bottle and serve chilled. Goes well with leftover barramundi and crab

HOMEMADE KAHLUA
4 cups of water
4 cups of sugar
¼ cup of instant coffee (good quality and certainly NOT black and gold!)
1 quart (4 cups) of vodka. (any old vodka will do)
1 vanilla bean (a dash of vanilla essence will do if want to speed up the process)
Combine the water and sugar and boil for around 5 minutes. Add coffee and boil 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and add vanilla bean (or essence). Allow to cool. Add vodka. Bottle and let set for 2 – 3 weeks in a dark place. If you can’t wait to enjoy it then 2 – 3 hours will probably do. Goes well with anything any time.
Enjoy your camping and cooking
