My other stand-by drink picker is to go to The Grogalizer and sort the drinks by average rating. First make anything that is an 8 or higher that you never tried before, then just make the best ones according to your ratings.
Be sure to rate everything you try while it is fresh so you have a ready record of what you have made and how you liked it for later.

Looks like the top three that most people agree on are Mai Tai, Navy Grog, and Jet Pilot, with Zombie being close behind. I'm on a medication that doesn't like grapefruit juice, is there any point in trying the Navy Grog without it?

There are 2 navy grog versions to my mind, don beach with honey & trader vic with sugar & pimento. I prefer the don beach version.
I think the honey & grapefruit combo is what works in the don beach version, I would make the trader vic version & use fresh OJ instead of grapefruit (OJ is great with pimento).
