Classic Tiki Cocktail Drinks: The "Jet Pilot" cocktail recipe using 3 types of rum!

Classic Tiki Cocktail Drinks: How to make the "Jet Pilot" cocktail for your tiki lounge.

This is a cousin of the famous "Test Pilot" tiki cocktail.
The origins of the "jet pilot' go back to around 1950, where the drink was invented at the Luau Restaurant. This drink really symbolizes many tiki drinks, it's got three rums and exotic fruit juices. It usually has a limit two or one in the tiki bar drink menus. This drink, as with many classic tiki cocktails, takes a bit of prep, but the rewards are well worth the effort. This is one of those vintage tiki cocktails that you just have to try, so give it a go! This one is potent, it contains three types of rum.  The Cinnamon syrup and bitters combine to give it a interesting edge.  The anise liqueur also helps to give the drink some complexity. It is amazing how all the ingredients in this drink blend so well together. If you like rum and want a great rum recipe, you have to give the Jet Pilot a go. It's a great addition to your tiki bar.

Cinnamon Syrup: We will cover how to make your own cinnamon syrup in a future article on this site.

You can also use absinthe instead of Pernod, which is what we did. Also if you do not have any cinnamon syrup you can use the powered spice if you have to, but it is not preferred.

Jet Pilot Recipe: 
• 1 oz Jamaican rum (Appleton, Wray and Nephew, etc.)
• 3/4 oz gold Puerto Rican rum (Ron Llave Supremo, Bacardi Gold, etc.)
• 3/4 oz 151-proof demerara rum (Lemon Hart)
• 1/2 oz grapefruit juice
• 1/2 oz Fresh lime juice
• 1/2 oz cinnamon syrup (Torani, Monin, etc)
• dash of Angostura bitters
• 6 dashes Pernod or Herbsaint or Absinthe
• 4 oz crushed ice
• cherry for garnish

Mixing Instructions:
Pour all of the liquid ingredients into a cocktail blender.
Add the ice to the blender.
Blend for about 10-15 seconds.
Pour into a hurricane, margarita glass or favorite tiki mug.
Garnish the cocktail with a cherry which is sometimes caramelized, or small toy plane.
