Veterans Day

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 World War I formally ended with the German signing of the Armistice. Today we recognize this day by remembering all who have generously served our country in the armed forces. Throughout this week the ladies of LUPEC Boston will be honoring Veterans Day by raising our glasses to all the women who have voluntarily served this country in the military. Check back often to join in our toasts!

For now...Navy Grog!
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz grapefruit juice
3/4 oz honey
1 oz light Puerto Rican rum
1 oz dark Jamaican rum
1 oz Demerara rum
1 oz chilled club soda

Heat honey until liquid, then mix with juices in blender. Stir in rums and soda. Pour into double old-fashioned glass filled with crushed ice, or sip drink through ice cone.

Navy Grog Ice Cone
To prepare cone: pack ten ounce Pilsner glass with finely shaved ice. Run a hole through center with a chopstick to make a passage for straw. Gently remove cone from glass and freeze overnight.

This is an original Don the Beachcomber recipe as printed in Beachbum Berry's Grog Log! If you like the Beachbum and his delicious cocktails be sure to join him, DJ Brother Cleve and Waitiki next Sunday, November 18th at Pho Republique for the Beantown Sippin' Safari!
