What the *$^% is: Grog
Grog - Refers traditionally to a mixture of alcohol and water.
Today Grog can refer to any number of drinks usually involving rum, usually pirate themed.
In Australia and New Zealand it means pretty much any alcoholic drink.
Ironically, while most people associate Grog with pirates and sailors accounts show that they prefered Bumboo, rum mixed with water, sugar and nutmeg.
