It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so thought I might be posting a piratey recipe.

What could be more piratey than Grog? The name's not very descriptive in itself, but it's basically a limey sugary rum - they used to make it to help stretch their rum rations out a bit. Lime juice probably helped reduce the risk of scurvy too.

This isn't the same as "Navy Grog" which is a cocktail invented in the 1940s, and contains 3 different rums, 2 differnt juices, soda water and honey syrup. This be pirate grog

If you don't have a cocktail shaker (I don't), you can just use a (clean) empty jam jar or similar instead - basically as long as the lid seals, it'll work
