It randomly got REALLY cold in Pennsylvania and I was in super need of something to warm my body....and my soul. Straight coffee was not helping, nor was tea so I turned to the only other option that made sense; my liquor cabinet.
Once open, the logical choice was rum but I wanted something slightly warm, but this tends to do strange things to the taste of liquor by itself. Started looking at my cookbooks trying to figure out what to do when I spotted a very old sea port based cookbook that had just what I wanted....GROG. Grog was traditionally made with British tea due to spice trade on those very ports which becomes the bases and brings in more flavors and allows one to enjoy with the ability to still stand up afterwords. So here is my recipe that I came up with after the research from those recipes in that book.

8oz freshly brewed English Tea
1/8c dark spiced rum
1 slices of orange
1 tsp sugar
1/2tsp lemon juice
cinnamon stick (optional)
orange peel garnish (optional)

Place Sugar in the bottom of a coffee mug, add the orange over top of it. Poor in Hot tea to dissolve the sugar. Add the rum. Mix in the lemon juice. Add garnishes and enjoy. Simple as that.

please note: this drink obviously contains alcohol. I do not support the consumption of such products by minors. Please enjoy responsibly.  Wink Grin
thanks for looking. *goomba*

That's actually my "usual"

Sounds like that will keep you warm!

Very interesting. I remember hearing about it before but had not tried it. I did make hot buttered rum once and a hot toddy. I will have to try that one. Although, maybe with a homemade vanilla spice rum as I am allergic to cinnamon.

It's called Blueberry Tea because it tastes like blueberries I think.
(Near the end of the second teacupful you do not worry about what it tastes like. Just that you are warm!)

I've only ever had it made with Amaretto on its own (no Grand Marnier), and with ordinary tea (not Earl Grey). And we probably skimped on the orange slice too. (BG)

Mead is amazing and do not judge it by whats on the market (usually Chaucer's) which is usually honey wine which is technically different than mead.

Grog is such an old name that it's applied to a lot of drinks, almost always rum based. If I remember correctly it's thought that originally it was rum and water (or drinkable equivalent of the day) that was given to sailors as part of their rations.

As I used to perform as a pirate to me grog is rum, rum, rum, with a little more rum in it!! But this sounds delicious and sure makes me wish I had some rum!
