Grog

What does "Grog" mean?

Today it means: A drink

Grog is a cocktail of equal parts water and some alcoholic drink. The Royal Navy would issue a daily ration of rum or gin known as "tot". The rum was especially thick and so would need to be watered down to make it drinkable. Hence, if the drink was watered down, it was "grog", otherwise it was "a tot".
