REI sells a very nice stainless-steel vacuum bottle in both one- and half-liter sizes, complete with a tough plastic threaded cap and insulated cup. The liter model goes for $28, the half-liter for $24 (www.rei.com). L.L. Bean sells similar-sized bottles for $19 and $22, respectively, plus a big 48-ounce model for $29 (www.llbean.com).
Mix all these ingredients in a saucepan and heat until blended. Pack along a little whipped cream, too, for topping it off! Better yet, add a few ounces of good bourbon before serving.
