Test Pilot Cocktail Recipe

The Test Pilot was cause for inspiration for many riffs including the Space Pilot, Jet Pilot, Ace Pilot and the Astronaut. It was first created by Don the Beachcomber back in 1941 and features in Jeff Berry's Beach Bum Berry Remixed cocktail book.
It's a potent blend of a dark Jamaican rum, white Puerta Rican rum and typical tiki ingredients - falernum, fresh lime and bitters. The addition of Pernod brings notes of aniseed to the intense tropical drink.
