Gettin' Groggy with It (GGWI)

Grog
is said to have been created to help prevent scurvy aboard British ships, though it only succeeded in getting the seamen drunk. Getting Groggy with It (GGWI) sails this traditional drink straight into the 21st century. Swapping out the water with Good Earth tea provides a flavorful base (and an illusion of healthfulness). GGWI should be doled out in mugs at intimate gatherings—because, as they say, the larger the crew, the higher the risk of mutiny.

Instructions

  1. 1Steep 4 tea bags in 1 quart hot water for 3 minutes.
  2. 2Combine tea with cognac, rum, honey, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and cloves in a medium saucepan. Stir well.
  3. 3Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.
  4. 4Serve in heatproof mugs and garnish with a pinch of ground nutmeg and a cinnamon stick.
