Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bumbo is a drink made from rum, water, sugar and nutmeg. Cinnamon is sometimes substituted for or added to the nutmeg. Modern Bumbo is often made with dark rum, citrus juice, Grenadine and nutmeg.A related drink is the Traitor, made with orange juice, rum, honey and nutmeg, mixed and heated.Bumbo was popular in the Caribbean during the era of piracy, largely because it tasted better than Royal Navy Grog.Pirates and short-haul merchantmen did not suffer from scurvy as often as British sailors, largely because their voyages were shorter and their diet included plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. This meant that citrus juice could be dropped from the grog recipe, and sugar and nutmeg sweetened the mix.show more
