Review:

Not to be confused with the famous Tiki cocktail, Navy Grog, this Navy rum and honey sour is very enjoyable.

Variant:

Also great served hot. Top with boiling water and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

History:

This Grog traces its origin back to the British Navy and Admiral Edward "Old Grog" Vernon's 1740 Order to Captains No.349 instructing that the daily ration of high-proof Navy rum was diluted with water and that where possible lime juice and sugar was made available.
