Yes, we had another tiki challenge past weekend, and this time the crazy rummy freaks was making pictures, experiments, twists and amazing drunken rituals with another classic tiki drink: Jet Pilot.
Searching on the Bum books I found the recipe of the Jet Pilot on the Sippin’ Safari, it was the version of The Luau Restaurant on Beverly Hills (circa 1958) and it calls for: 1/2oz lime juice, 1/2oz grapefruit juice, 1/2oz cinnamon syrup, 1/2oz falernum, 1oz dark jamaican rum, 3/4oz gold puerto rican rum, 3/4oz Lemonhart 151 Demerara, 1 dash Angostura bitters, 6 drops Pernod.
Thinking about it…I wanted to make a twist on this recipe… I wanted to do something special with the rums…and of course, if it’s a classic cocktail why I can’t do it using a selection of vintage bottles that I had on my rum collection?
I decided to use my vintage bottles of Lemonhart Demerara and Lemonhart Golden Jamaica Overproof and make a Lemonhart Jet Pilot.
- ½oz Lime juice
- ½oz Grapefruit juice
- ½oz Rich Cinnamon Syrup
- ½oz Falernum
- 1oz Lemonhart Demerara
- ¾oz Lemonhart Golden Jamaica Overproof
- ¾oz Lemonhart 151 Demerara
- 1 dash Dale DeGroff's Pimento Aromatic Bitters
- 6 drops Pernod
- Put everything in a blender with 1 cup of crushed ice.
- Blend it for 5 seconds.
- Serve in a double old fashioned glass.
- Add more crushed ice to fill.
- Garnish with a lime wheel speared with a bomboo stick and 2 marraschino cherries.
