The recipe of the Grog with rum
There are several versions of the grog, with or without milk, whisky-based, brandy, etc. Today we are interested in the pirate version of the beverage.
The ingredients: hot water, honey, amber rum, a lemon, and a cinnamon stick as a touillette (if not powdered cinnamon will also work).
In your favourite cup, pour 3 cl of amber rum, followed by a teaspoon of honey. Then complete with hot water and add a few drops of lemon. Order is important to promote dilution and mixing. Serve the grog in a large thick glass, tolerant of high temperatures, ideally a handle glass, beer mug style, mazagran or mug.
Mix, drink, put yourself in a safe lateral position and fall asleep. No need to add essential oils, the benefits of the latter are destroyed or reduced with heat. The grog is ideal for colds and sore throats.
