I think the two main Navy Grog recipes are the original from Don the Beachcomber and the Trader Vic's version. DtB version has the honey mix and soda, while the TV version has pimento dram and rock candy syrup. Other than that, they're pretty much the same.

I think you are right, i think some folks are adding a quarter ounce pimento dram to the DtB version and mistakenly calling it a TV navy grog. I've tried this method myself, and it is quite delicious.

My Navy Grog is an amalgamation of TV's & DTB's recipes. This is one of my very favorite 3 or 4 cocktails, Tiki or otherwise:

3/4oz Lime (white grapefruit is preferred)
3/4oz Grapefruit
1oz Honey Mix (I make a rich honey syrup using 2:1 honey:water)
1oz White PR Rum (Ron Matusalem, Cruzan and Brugal all work fine)
1oz Dark Jamaican Rum (Coruba is best, but Myers works too. Avoid Goslings)
1oz Demerara Rum (not 151)
1/4oz Pimento Dram

Mix for 5 seconds with crushed ice and serve. An ice cone garnish is a nice touch.

I've been making this over the weekend using 3.5 oz of Bacardi Select (I'm otherwise out of rum!). It's very nice, really brings out the grapefruit, honey, lime, and allspice flavors. VERY nice.
