So here is what is even more interesting about this to me. Last night I made three Navy Grogs using different rums as follows:
Cruzan Silver, Cruzan Gold, Meyers Dark
Trader Vics Silver, Trader Vics Gold, Meyers (this is what they used last time I was in Emeryville)
Plantation 5 year, Appleton 12, Lemon Hart 80
I think the best tasting one was the one that used the Trader Vic's rums . . . go figure!
I was also thinking (hey I was in the process of having 3 Navy Grogs, what else can you do but think) that I too balked at first over the $42 total price tag for the concentrate BUT why is it I have no problem plunking down $40 for three Navy Grogs (including tip) at Trader Vic's? How could 430 cocktails at less than a $1 each be a bad deal (especially the way I drink!?
Why, because I hadn't had a Navy Grog prior to or during the contemplation of purchasing said concentrate . . .
