Coffee Grog

Coffee Grog cocktail with butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon syrups, allspice dram, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, orange and grapefruit peels, hot coffee, aged rum, and overproof Demerara rum

Coffee Grog is a classic tiki recipe from Don the Beachcomber. It might have been lost to the beach-sands of time were it not for Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, who found the recipe, dusted it off, and printed it in his book Sippin’ Safari.

Like many hot cocktails in this family of drinks, this recipe starts with a batter. The batter will make enough for many drinks, so don’t use it all up in one drink unless you like the idea of chugging a mouthful of butter!

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by mixing up the batter: combine the softened butter, honey, vanilla syrup, allspice dram, and cinnamon. Mix well, and store in a covered dish in the refrigerator. It should make about 9 servings.

To a heatproof glass, add two teaspoons of the batter, the sugar cube, the spices, and the citrus peels. Add the hot coffee, stirring until the sugar and batter dissolve. Stir in the rums, and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
