Sailors in the British Royal Navy received a daily ration (known as a tot) of a 1/2 gill of rum which was served in a copper mug. Sailors in lower ranks received their tot diluted with two parts water to create a half pint of grog. Lime juice was also added to help prevent scurvy. Give one as a gift to friends and family or enjoy a daily tot of your favorite rum with this copper measuring cup. Ration cup stands 2" tall with a 2" diameter and 1 3/8" wide handle.
