Lucas developed this riff on a classic Navy Grog build to showcase the interplay of three distinct high proof rums. Following the lead of Donn Beach in layering different varieties of rum to create a delicious sum, he used 151 Demerara rum for heft and its bass notes of dark spice and earthiness, 151 Jamaican rum for fruitiness and funk, and 169 proof column still rum from St. Vincent and the Grenadines for a clean, lightly sweet catalyzation. Alongside the traditional spiced hibiscus liqueur of Sorel, these rums work together to achieve a tasteful, if high-octane, balance. The result may have you come back for another sip and wonder, as you do, what gives your captain the right?

What You Need:


Add all ingredients to drink mixer tin alongside 8-ounces of pebble ice. Flash blend for 5 seconds and open pour into a chilled double old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a dehydrated lime wheel.

*Lucas, spirits specialist at BayTowne, created this on the basis of blending high proof rum from Guyana, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Jamaica. Beware, delving into it might have you think better of servitude. Why not give the orders yourself?
