Okay, I'm having the hybrid Navy Grog above, with Orange Clover Honey Mix, and a 1/4 oz of STE Dram, Myers, LH151 & Cruzan White . . . very tasty, had to let the ice melt a bit though, that STEDram is a potent potable!



heh. not to mention LH 151...

actually, some of us make that hybrid recipe above with an oz of soda water also (per DtB formula)...

I can't vouch for them, but I found this online retailer from Florida:

they are out of season they stop shipping the white ones on april 2nd, i found a few vendors but none shipping now

it appears texas arizona and cali produce the spring summer for the country but i dont see any place to order from them online, only flordia...perhaps they haven't ramped up their advertising until the end of the month

Nearly every store here in Southern California only sells pink grapefruit.




I find it my local Ralphs. Have you tried there?

This is the new label:



All I have on hand is the old label. Is it just me or does the new label make it look like bottom shelf rum? Maybe it is now. The previous label was questionable. This one is pathetic.

Over at the Ministry of Rum, Ed Hamilton said that Wray & Nephew (Appleton) not only changed Coruba's label, but they changed the formula as well. He says that Appleton wanted a more flavorful product:

My favorite Navy Grog (the one that I am drinking at this very moment) is an amalgamation of Trader Vic's & Don The Beachcomber's recipes:

.75oz Lime Juice
.75oz White Grapefruit Juice
1oz PR/VI White Rum (Brugal, Cruzan)
1oz Jamaican Dark (Coruba, Myer's)
1oz Demerara Rum (ElDo12, LH80)
1oz Honey Syrup
1/4oz Allspice Dram (St Elizabeth, Bitter Truth, Berry Hill)

Since Pusser's is a blend of five West Indian rums, primarily Jamaican & Demerara rums, it might make an interesting and tasty single rum Navy Grog. Those of you with Pusser's in your bar-how about some first hand reports from the field??!



made this one it was very good, also tried adding 1 oz of club soda to it, didnt care for that
cruzan white coruba and lh 80 - which was my last drop of lh80 - but i have ed12 so that will have to work

Might try it a bit less sweet with .75 oz of honey syrup next time

They taste very similar to Trader Vics

We've confirmed that The Mai-Kai's version, called Yeoman's Grog, now contains both Lemon Hart and a rare dark Jamaican rum called Kohala Bay (formerly known as Wray & Nephew's 'Dagger'). Our guess on the third rum is a light Puerto Rican or Virgin Islands rum.
