This drink can get you groggy, indeed. Rummy smell and rummy taste, you could hurt your throat with its burning sensation. Pairing it with richberry could somehow ease you up with the flavour. The word grog originally referred to rum mixed with water that was rationed to crews of the British Royal Navy in 1740. This drink is considered to be part in what is called the holy trinity of tiki cocktails, alongside the Mai Tai and the Zombie.
