Navy Grog AKA The Ancient Mariner

Last week I wrote on Don of Don the Beachcombers restaurant and bar and I mentioned had created several cocktails including the Navy Grog also known as the Ancient Mariner. It's a rum based drink and I've had the pleasure of tasting it at 320 Main in Seal Beach, CA and at  CaƱa  Rum bar in Downtown Los Angeles.

This is is a wonderful drink that can be served at you're next Patio Daddy-O function this summer and also can be found in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails.

Navy Grog (Ancient Mariner)

1 oz Demerara rum not the 151 proof
1 oz Dark Jamaican rum
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
1/2 oz simply syrup
1/4 oz Allspice Dram

Build in an old-fashioned glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and a mint sprig.
