Royal Navy toast of the day:
On this day in 1740, in an attempt to reduce drunkenness among the sailors, British Vice Admiral Edward Vernon issued an order that their daily ration of a half- pint of rum was to be mixed with four parts water. Half of the new ration, called grog, was to be served in the mid-morning and the rest in late afternoon.
On this day in 1740, Admiral Vernon ordered that sailors may, "... from the saving of their salt provisions and bread, purchase sugar and limes to make [their ration of rum] more palatable..."
