Jet Pilot Cocktail

"A throwback to the 50s, this mid-century classic flew out of the heyday of Hollywood in Beverly Hills. It has the traditional Tiki mish-mash of ingredients that begins with a trio of rums and swirls into a stellar libation."

1 ounce Appleton Reserve

¾ ounce Ron Del Barrilito

¾ ounce Lemonhart 151

½ ounce Velvet Falernum

½ ounce cinnamon syrup

½ ounce grapefruit juice

½ ounce lime juice

1 dash Angostura bitters

1 dash absinthe

This is as simple as lying on the beach. Put one or two ice cubes along with all the ingredients into your shaker and whip shake that baby like you’re trying to achieve liftoff. Once the cubes melt, strain into a Tiki glass filled with crushed ice. This type of shaking aerates and dilutes to form a slight froth at the top of the glass like a wisp of cirrus clouds. Garnish with your favorite citrus and a bit of mint.
