To put this thread back on the Navy Grog track, let me tell this story. This last weekend in Las Vegas, I visited a new place that opened in the Mirage, the Rhumbar. They specialize in both classic and new rum drinks. After sampling the Mai Tai (which was the TV recipe), I asked if they did any Tropical drinks off the menu. They said sure we can make you whatever you want. I then requested a Navy Grog. The bartender replied "I've never heard of that" but looked it up in something titled "The Bartender's Black Book". She then said "sorry, we don't do blended drinks". (!!)

Here's the exact recipe that she showed me:

1 cup of ice
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz Demerarra rum
.5 oz OJ
.5 oz guava or passion fruit juice
.5 oz pineapple juice
.5 oz fresh lime juice
.5 oz orgeat syrup

Blend until smooth. Garnish with lime and mint sprig.

At least it sounds yummy! Maybe we can give it a new name, the Navy Grog Frappe!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good online source for hard rock candy swizzle sticks? I see several on Amazon, but some have really mixed reviews. And I'd prefer to order around a dozen rather 72 or a gross.

Trader Joe's has been carrying them very recently - in 6-packs, if I remember right.

For rock candy swizzle sticks, just head to your nearest ol' timey candy store, I've even seen them in some of the local car washes. I buy mine by the box of 72, but the candy stores, car washes (even the hospital gift shop) sell them individually or in packs of six.

Thanks Croe, I'll check out TJ's. And Blue Kahuna, I apparently need to move to your town.

Thoughts about what? The measurements? The ingredients? The taste?

As a cocktail, it's fine even though it doesn't taste like a Navy Grog, specifically because of the omission of grapefruit juice. If I were going to recreate it I'd guess 1 oz of each ingredient (well, maybe 1/2 oz of Grand Marnier and maybe slightly more pineapple juice). Blend with ice and serve.

I went for the 72 and ordered from the very appetizingly-named
BulkFoods.com.

Good price per unit, and I knew I'd get through 72 eventually.

And it works very well! It's easier than using a pilsner glass because it's open at both ends so you can run your chopstick or whatever you use to make the straw hole through very easily. The Beachbum Berry ice cone mold comes with a metal ramming tool but it's too thin think and I'm back to using the trusty old chopstick.

That cone is very cool

I would also like to see the mold they use for a Dr Funk (the ice mold that the glass is in) the bartender at TV used to put my puka puka in that glass and it was awesome

I was interested in the cone maker at first for $18. But with shipping costs it came out to $30 and that's when I decided I really didn't need it.

Pilsner glass vs. ice cone mold: Which method is best?

The very unscientific research is posted here, along with a couple of my favorite recipes ...
