army navy grog

1 oz London Dry Gin (Beefeater)
1 oz Demerara Rum (El Dorado 5 Year)
1 oz Dark Jamaican Rum (Coruba)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Honey Syrup
3/4 oz Orgeat
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass, and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I decided to make another drink that I had spotted on the Modern Tiki site. That recipe was a mashup of the Army & Navy that first appeared in David Embury and Don the Beachcomber's Navy Grog minus the grapefruit juice that they dubbed the Army Navy Grog. Once prepared, the Grog donated a lemon and caramel bouquet to the nose. Next, a creamy lemon, lime, honey, and caramel sip saluted a dark rum, earthy-nutty, pine, clove, and allspice flavored swallow.
