Grog is a term that encompasses various alcoholic beverages. Initially, the term referred to rum that was diluted with water, and during long sea voyages, it also included the addition of lime or lemon juice. This practice was introduced by Edward Vernon in the British naval squadron under his command in the West Indies on 21 August 1740. Edward Vernon, also known as Old Grogram or Old Grog due to his attire of grogram cloth, popularized this concoction.
In Northern Germany, Grog is a traditional winter drink originating from East Frisia. It is prepared by combining rum, sugar, and water, then heating it to boiling point. This delightful Hot Grog is known for its comforting qualities, featuring a warm, honeyed taste with a touch of pungent rum and a hint of lime.
