Trader Vic’s Grog

Trader Vic's Grog cocktail, with dark rum, passion fruit syrup, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters

Trader Vic’s Grog is a classic tiki drink from a founding father: Victor Bergeron, of the Trader Vic’s chain of Polynesian-inspired, kitch-laden bars and restaurants.

We prefer this tweaked recipe from Beachbum Berry Remixed, which calls for passion fruit syrup instead of the harder-to-find juice. You can use whichever you have on hand – or even try passion fruit puree, which has a sweetness level somewhere between the syrup and the juice.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
