This installment of ‘Sunday’s Cocktails Are Better Than Others’ couldn’t have come at a better time. In this episode, Raphael Holzer will teach you how to make Grog #7 – a whisky-based, spice-infused drink that’s perfect for the holiday season.
In its earliest incarnation, the Grog was merely a mixture of hot rum and water with an occasional sprinkling of spices. It was invented by the 18th-century British admiral Edward Vernon, nicknamed Old Grog, who attempted to prevent scurvy by serving his men this unique concoction. The Grog has undergone many refinements over the years but today, it’s commonly enjoyed during the winter season. It’s got sweetness and spice and everything nice.
