The US Navy was heavily influenced from its founding by British Navy customs and traditions. One such tradition was a daily ration of “Grog,” which was a mixture of water and rum.
Although modern US Navy ships are officially dry, sailors on liberty ashore will at times refer to an alcoholic beverage as “Grog.”
