Later on Monday night, I began to feel a chill from the winter winds assaulting the house, and thus I started scanning Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars 1903-1933 for a hot drink. One that caught my eye was a Boston-named one, the Boston Grog, that has yet to make it onto DrinkBoston's list. My searching could not find a history or a reason why it was associated with the city, and it could have been named purely for nostalgia of a spot one of the American traveling mixologist authors had left as they continued to ply their trade abroad during Prohibition.
