Navy Grog.



I didn't care too much for my first few attempts at a Don's Navy Grog, much preferring the all spice addition of Vic's version. Not sure if it's the rum blend I chose this time or the fact I finally have fresh white grapefruit rather than pink or bottled but this one is really delicious.

Note: Not my best ice cone. The tip broke off when I was trying to poke a new hole through the top that had closed up.

mikehooker- i really love the yeoman's grog, which basically combines the TV and DtB recipes. the honey mix with the allspice dram is fantastic.

I've been meaning to try that one but haven't made a vanilla syrup yet. Will have to get on that soon.

The version on Atomic Grog calls for Don's Spices #2 which is equal parts vanilla syrup and allspice dram. BG makes a version but none of the places that carry his products around here have that one.

Ok so since the last 2 Mai Tais I've made have been disappointing, I've been double checking the recipe and noticed a Beachbum Berry discrepancy between Remixed and his official website.

So in Remixed he's got...

1oz Lime
1oz Dark Jamaican (Tried Appleton VX, Smith & Cross, and Myers so far)
1oz Amber Martinique (Tried Clement, MG Eclipse, and Barbancourt so far)
0.25 oz Orgeat
0.25 oz Simple Syrup
0.5 oz Orange Curacao

On this website here:
http://beachbumberry.com/recipe-mai-tai.html

He's added an extra 0.25 oz of Orgeat.

Anyone know what I should be using? Checking other recipes around the net seem to suggest, on average, a little less curacao and/or an amount of Orgeat matching the Curacao. Is that right?

It sort of leads me to ask the, possibly forbidden, question around here... do these tiny amounts really make a difference? Is 7.5ml of sugar syrup a big deal? And if these measures are impactful, is there going to be a huge difference if I double the Orgeat?

You can double the orgeat and skip the simple syrup. I do this at times I like the hint of almond flavor in my Mai Tai.

Lately I've been doing a lot of my mai tai's with .5 oz orgeat and eliminating the sugar syrup all together. You get some added sweetness from the extra orgeat plus more of the yummy almond flavor. It works with some rum combos but not with others. You just need to keep playing around with different combos and measurements until you find what pleases your palette the most. I've done over 30 variations of a mai tai and still play around with it all the time, wondering if I can make it even better, experimenting with a three and even four rum blend (Denizen Merchant Reserve, Clement VSOP, and Appleton 12 with a Lemon Hart 151 float knocked it out of the park).

Yep, those tiny amounts make a difference!

There's a video where Beachbum Berry talks about this EXACT thing - how he initially started out at .25 oz of orgeat and as time went on he started upping the orgeat for the right balance.

https://youtu.be/4uOD9YlzqJ8?t=39m7s (that's the pertinent bit, but watch the whole thing)

There have been a couple of times where I was a bit heavy-handed with the Pierre Ferrand dry curacao and thought, "No worries, it'll be fine"...and it wasn't. It had brought out a bitterness that was not complimentary.

Try this:

.75 oz. fresh lime
.50 curacao
.50 orgeat
.25 simple / rock candy / Demerara syrup
2 oz. rum(s) of your choice

I like dialing back the lime ever-so-slightly.

This is exactly what I do as well. Keep the syrup total at 3/4 oz, whether it's 1/2 orgeat and 1/4 simple, or just 3/4 orgeat - something I picked up from Blair Reynolds and the folks at Hale Pele.
