Green Grog

Today is our October meeting of the Munchin' Mamas and we're having a "frighteningly delicious" theme. I debated what I wanted to make and almost made these little sausages wrapped up to look like mummies (i.e. pigs in a blanket, Halloween-style), but when I saw what everyone else was bringing, I realized no one had any beverages. You all know that I can't resist a good beverage (particularly if it's laced with some "spirits" if we're going with the whole holiday theme?!), so I'm making Green Grog.

For those who aren't familiar with "grog" - it is a rum drink that is usually diluted with water. If you'd like the history lesson, it's named after British admiral, Edward Vernon (1684-1757). Vernon always wore a grogram cloak (hence the "grog") and served the diluted rum mixture to his sailors.

This time, I'm diluting it with juices, soda and sherbet!

Green Grog
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans frozen limeade concentrate
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans frozen lemonade concentrate
2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
1 (750 milliliter) bottle rum
2 quarts lime sherbet

  1. In a large pot, combine limeade, lemonade and lemon-lime soda. 
  2. Stir in rum (add more to taste if desired.) Mix in the lime sherbet.
