So, what is a Grog drink? A grog is simply spirits mixed with water. Let us go back in time to the Navy Grog. The term grog itself came from 15th or 16th century when European sailors begin sailing to the Americas. This grog drink was named after Edward Vernon who was nicknamed “Old Grog” for wearing his grogram coat. He was an English Admiral of the Royal Navy. Back then sailors would bring rum along with them on ships contained in barrels. Rum was the preferred choice compared to plain water. The sailors were required to mix their rum with water in portions which gave their water some taste. Later the grog drink became a cocktail with the addition of lime and brown sugar adding to the mix of rum and water which they consume to help fight off scurvy. Grog was served either cold or warm.
Since its invention, it’s been sold in liquor stores with many different refinements or recipes for the historical drink. The all-new Texas Grog is here to stay.
