I like it 4 points of the compass, more than that, and the lime juice and sugar tend to drown out the rum. What's interesting about REAL 'Royal Navy Grog' is HOW GOOD IT IS.
The idea is to emphasise the exoticism of the liquid that Don Facundo bottled 150 years ago, complementing his originality with some of my own. This drink is very refreshing, the sprite makes the drink just sweet enough, as the spiced and white rum are completely sugarless.
A bit of history, a dash of nobility combined with an oriental touch... While being very well balanced, it posesses enough alcohol to make any rum fan satisfied. Add half a lime quartered with the white central column removed.
Add the Gosling's Black Seal Rum and Bols Blackberry. Garnish with Blackberries and Raspberries and sprinkle a dash of icing sugar over the berries.
Bake the pineapple chunks with some, about a tblsp JW&N overproof rum in a thick saucepan.
After the muddling, add two shots of Brugal Especial Extra Dry White Rum and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Optional: Add Raspberries during the muddling part for a fruity variation. Strain into a cocktail glass, half-filled with crushed ice. All right, this comes from about the 1820's and later, when the Jackies got their lime juice ration, a tablespoon of rough sugar to sweeten that, and their rum ration, which was delivered in concentrated form.
Top the Highball with 6 ice cubes or all the way up to the rim of the glass. Stir all the ingredients again bringing all the flavors from the bottom to the top. Place the first 4 Ingredients in a Metal Martini Shaker. Grog is made by 'Points of the Compass.' 2 points of the compass--two parts water to one part rum. '3 points of the Compass' -- 3 parts water to 1 part rum.
It goes down very easily, and by the time you've had two or three servings, so do you.
The British tars used to add other things to the Grog as it suited them--Pepper, for one, I didn't think it added much.
Put sugar,water and lime jucie into the shaker and stir for 5 seconds add the Bacardi and some nice freezing cold ice straight from the freezer shake hard for about 12 seconds so the shaker nealy sticks to your hands. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing glass and stir to dissolve the marmalade. Julep strain into an old fashioned over cubed ice and garnish with a lemon twist. If you don't have the luxury of a beach, open a window, throw on your shorts, and turn on the fan. The cocktail golden prestige has been created by Nicolas Michel for the Swiss Bacardi legacy competition.
In shaker add 1oz syrup, 6 mint leaves, juice/peel from 3/4 lime, cracked ice and 2 oz Mt Gay Special Reserve. Golden prestige has been chosen to be in the last 6 most promising cocktail.
The final will take place the 4th of february 2013 in Zurich.
