    The navy grog is a classic tiki drink made with three kinds of rum, grapefruit juice, honey simple syrup, and seltzer. This iconic drink was first served up by Don the Beachcomber in 1941 and is still found on many tiki bar and restaurant menus today. Grog cocktails (rum, water, lime juice, and sugar) were popular among sailors and pirates after it was first invented back in the 18th century.
