We’re not sure why but a lot of rum drinks seem to be super heavy on the rum. Why use one kind when three will do? We’re thinking of you Mr. Zombie. So the drink below isn’t in keeping with the authentic Navy Grog. For starters we don’t have demerara rum. Purists can find a bar stool elsewhere. Oh who are we kidding our bar stools are about two feet from this desk and the contents of the liquor cabinet are scattered about the house. The joys of renovation. You should find a bar stool elsewhere regardless.
- 1 oz light rum
- 1 oz demerara rum or other dark rum
- juice from half a lime
- 2 oz grapefruit juice
- 1 ounce honey syrup*
- 3/4 oz soda water
Combine all ingredients expect soda water in a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass with a few ice cubes. Top with soda water. Garnish with a lime wedge.
*To make the honey syrup combine equal parts honey and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir often until honey is combined. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
