Black Tot Day

Attention! It was on this day in 1970 that the British Royal Navy discontinued the centuries old tradition of providing a daily rum ration, or “tot,” to its sailors.

In rememberance of Black Tot Day, let us all raise a glass of grog:


2 ounces water
1 ounce Jamaican rum (Pusser’s)
1/2 ounce lime juice
1 tablespoon raw sugar

shake over ice, strain into a rocks glass full of ice.

If this was once part of my compensation and it was taken away, I’d be pretty darned upset!
