Measurements are a bit rough, but grog should be rough.

Heat 12 oz water to a boil
combine with 2-3 tablespoons molases
add 2 oz rum (kraken dark works well)
Salt to taste.

It's not proper grog if there's no lime juice to keep the scurvy at bay.

Also, real grog should ideally only ever be made with Pusser's Rum and NEVER with spiced rum. Horatio Nelson would have your teeth for that.

I always wondered why limes, when lemons have nearly twice the vitamin C per ounce.

limes taste better.

Besides being wholly subjective, that's fairly irrelevant when the point is using the most economic means of not dying of scurvy.

Was originally lemons, switched to limes because they were grown in British colonies instead of buying from mainland Europe, they didn't know limes have less vitamin C.
