Offering: Homemade hot drink mix

Item Name and Description Hot Drink Mix

I'm an amateur bartender who makes kickass hot buttered rum.

I am offering a 24 oz plastic container of the sugar mix I use to make my hot buttered rum, made freshly just for you and packaged in a brand new resealable plastic container. FYI, a single serving uses 1 oz of mix.

Ingredients: Brown sugar, Allspice, Cloves, Nutmeg, Cinnamon

It will come with a hand-printed copy of my hot buttered rum recipe on card stock, although the mix can be used without butter and can be made to your order with any of the spices left out or the sugar replaced with white sugar. I can't make it sugar-free, sadly, since the majority of the recipe is sugar. It is also excellent with cider if you do not drink alcohol.

Starting Bid is $10

I will cover shipping in the US and Canada for free. If you are outside the US or Canada, I have not had trouble shipping this internationally before, and I will cover up to $10 of the shipping cost. You can approximate what the additional cost might be here

I will be able to mix up and mail a batch within 7 working days of the auction closing.

If the bid goes above $20, I will double the batch.

If the bid goes above $40, I will throw in a small inked cartoon of an animal of your choosing in black india ink on acid-free bristol board, suitable for framing. You can see my artwork on my LJ.

Requests for Assistance Still Being Taken

Hi all—

The auction looks fabulous so far! Thank you for all your offers and bids, and please keep it up. =>

I want to remind everyone that fans of color may request assistance over at this post. I would also like to clear up a couple of potential misconceptions:

  • Con or Bust isn't a scholarship or an academic endeavor or anything like that. If you're worried that you don't have a doctorate or a published novel or an all-encompassing theory of the intersection between feminism and racism or a LiveJournal, please don't be. If you're a person of color, you want to go to WisCon, and you need assistance to do so, Con or Bust is for you, period.
  • People who have previously received assistance are not automatically precluded from receiving assistance again. If we ever have insufficient resources to help everyone, I imagine that previous assistance will be relevant, but I hope very much that this will not be a problem this year or in future years.

(I've edited the assistance post itself to include these clarifications.)

Please spread the word! Thanks again.
