Grog is a traditional English drink that dates back from the late XVIII century. It is an alcoholic beverage that is traditionally made with water, rum, lemon juice, and a touch of cinnamon.
Even though it is an English drink, it can be found on the menus worldwide.
But what is interesting about the grog is the fact that it is very easy to prepare and therefore you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.
It is good, especially in the winter, when the small portion of rum can make you feel warm and relaxed.
Besides the fact that it only needs few ingredients to be prepared, you can adjust it to your own taste. You can mix any proportion of water and rum, depending on your preference, and according to your momentarily whim you can experiment with any kind of juice until you find your perfect match. Also you can try replacing the cinnamon with sugar to get a sweeter flavor.
Through out the history, grog was used as drink for the navy, because it has been the only way to replace water on the long journeys. But the pirates also used its advantages. No wonder they are famous for their singing.
