Many great Tiki cocktails can’t be made with just one rum. The Navy Grog is a prime example. Don The Beachcomber’s 1940s classic calls for an ounce each of rich Jamaican rum, dry Puerto Rican rum, and smokey Demerara rum. But sourcing all three expressions isn’t always smooth sailing. Now Ed Hamilton and the Bum have made it easier… and tastier… and thriftier.
Their new Hamilton Beachbum Navy Grog Blend is a carefully selected combination of five different Caribbean rums from Jamaica, Guyana, and the Dominican Republic, all artfully mixed into one easy bottle.
And concentrated at traditional Navy Strength (114-proof), you get less dilution and therefore more flavor. You also use less rum per drink, giving you more Navy Grogs for your buck.
But why stop at Navy Grogs? The Hamilton Beachbum Navy Grog Blend is no one-trick pony. It can make any multiple-rum cocktail more seaworthy. Try it in your own original creations, or even a straight pour on the rocks.
