Meyers Dark with either grapefruit juice (sounds bad, but is a surpisingly good mix, discovered in an emergency) or a mixture of orange and lime juice, both with a heavy float of Meyers D on top (can you tell I like Meyers Dark?). Or strait occaisionally on ice (don't like the term "on the rocks" when on the boat). I've read here of Dark and Stormy, are they made with dark rum? Can't seem to find g. beer around here to try it, is it really a beer or a soft drink?

Ginger beer is a real beer, brewed with malts, hops and ginger and fermented with brewer's yeast. Gingerale is the sodapop soft drink made popular by Schwepps and Canada Dry.

Any body ever get a 'Grog' at Prussers in the BVI? I loved it but can't replicate it at home.
Before you send recipe's I've tried about a half dozen and they don't do the trick.
Originally it was just rum (all dark in those days) sugar, water and maybe lime.

My wife's cousin is famous for this trick. She goes away to the islands, falls in love with a drink at whatever bar she first comes to then spends the vacation drinking at that bar. When she's out with friends back home she raves about the drink and by her second drink back home she's calling information to get the bar's number back in the island, then she calling the bar and asking the bartender how to make the drink. They tell her, but always tell her about some ingredient she can't get back home. Then she calls her liquor store who orders her the missing ingedient.

you should try it, the British will fall over themselves to help you replicate the grog.

That sounds rather painful.

For me it's Morgan & Coke, and to avoid spilling the stuff - intravenous from the back-pack.

Your pleasure is my business !!!
