Helena, I will try a few experiments this weekend to see how close I can come to replicating the grog concentrate using the only Pimento Dram I have on hand, St. Elizabeth's Allspice Liquor. I doubt it will be a perfect match though.

There is a recent Tiki Central thread (within the last year) on replicating the Trader Vic Navy Grog without the concentrate. Unfortunately I can't find it right now. One of the last recipes in that thread was pretty successful and, although a little sweeter than the TV version, it was very tasty. It used a Pimento Dram and honey mixture. I used orange blossom honey so maybe clover honey would result in a closer match.

I always make my honey syrup on demand. I put a 50:50 honey and water mixture into a shot glass and heat it in a microwave for 15-20 seconds, until it starts to boil. At that point it mixes and pours easily so I give it a quick stir and pour it last into the drink before shaking/mixing. Only around 1/2 oz is used so the fact it is warm when added is of no consequence.
