Advent Grog

[Photo: Naomi Bishop]

Grog was originally used to help prevent scurvy in British sailors, but with scurvy no longer a problem, it's worth keeping this version from Seattle's Rob Roy around for the easy-drinking flavor.

Note: To make rich demerara syrup, combine 1 cup water with 2 cups demerara sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
