Rum

You know what the weirdest part of the Phil Spector murder was? The prosecution had the bartenders from the restaurants he was at the night of the murder, and they testified that he had drank this bizarre mix of rum-based drinks: 4 daiquiris, a shot of straight rum, and 2 "navy grogs".

I had to look up what a navy grog is (juice and different rums mixed together) - but the Wikipedia article on the history of the navy grog is fascinating. Back in the heyday of the British naval empire, they had to add a certain amount of rum to all the drinking water on a ship to keep it from getting fetid; sailors were basically constantly buzzed. The exact portion of rum mixed into the water for each sailor was officially set by the British goverment - this lasted until 1970, incredibly.

Point is, what kind of crazed, murderous monster actually gets drunk on rum??

Well, you know what was said about the Royal British Navy: nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash.

So why is this girl wasting all that good rum!

Young, tasty and stacked murderous monsters, apparently. Yum.
