panther piss

Hey, does anyone remember the recipe for this?
Just curious, trying to explain it to someone.

I remember actually liking it - after 20 hrs of physical labor with NO WATER.

Yeah -- that shit was good!

I don't remember the proportions, but it was water, vinegar and honey. I think that's all.

A lot of different people made it different ways, I would start with 1 part Honey, 2 parts Apple cider vinager and 4-6 parts water and play with it from there. Adding a bit of cayenne really gets the blood pumping if you need a pick-me-up as well.

Keep in mind that we are probably more accustomed to sweater food now... so try to go easy on the honey.

Someone else gave the formula as 1 part honey, 1 part viniger, 20 parts water. Someone else 1 part honey, 2 parts viniger (cider viniger) 10 parts water.

I guess it depends on your taste.

Panther Piss

Kids,

Check out a book entitled "Vermont Folk Medicine" - late 50's, early 60's; about the time Adell Davis was such a popular and trendy health guru, has this vinegar and honey thing pretty well covered. Ist wife and I usta make up a big batch of it and keep it in the frige. Got to like it better than iced tea; but then sorta got out of the habit.....went back to tea. Way before I ever heard of Dn, $cn or Hubbard...Ah! the good old days....

"Possum Piss" was our name for WD40 down at the garage. No shit. :wink:

I agree wholeheartedly!!!!

Although, it DOES remind me of a time when I was one decks, one of the fellows started making "protein shakes" every evening in the galley..(with ice cream and strawberries from the CMO freezer)

Turns out, he got in trouble for adding in a large quantity of cooking brandy one evening, then sharing it with the other deckies!!!

um, yeah no offense to those of you who like it, but I will NEVER drink that crap again! When I thought it was good it was because I was so desperately dehydrated.

I was just trying to explain what it was to someone who had never heard of it.

I also have fond memories of the panther piss, though our formula was closer to the 1 viniger, i honey and 20 water, and I think it was an adelle davis formula.

Adele used to be a standard in Scientology book stores until the powers that be decided she was "off source".

May I ask what the PP was used for? :)

Sounds like the Master Cleanse
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_Cleanse This detox I guess orginally had maple syrup but I have only heard it made with the honey and it uses lemons - not vinegar.

It was a drink used for those that were doing physical labor.

Vinegar...why vinegar?? Yuck, nasty stuff.

To help you through it, give you super strength, to piss you off? Why did they have you drink it? Is it Scientology Gatorade?

...just to clarify.
thanks!

Oh, no one had to drink it. But with only water or panther piss, many just drank the piss.
If you were on the RPF or the decks (ethics trouble) you weren't allowed to use the canteen (very very small "store").

If my memory is correct, the vinegar and honey provided potasium and electrolites and carbs. We weren't forced, when doing manual labor in the heat of summer, it was nice and refreshing ... offset to water or good replacement for such.

Yeah -- it actually isn't a "scn" thing (although probably used there more than anywhere else). It is in an Adelle Davis book, I think it was called "Let's Get Well" or something like that. Basically a cheap means of staying hydrated -- we had it while doing "renos" even when I was in the CMO.
