Review:

A lightly spicy blend of three characterful rums with citrus mellowed by blending with crushed ice.

Variant:

The Test Pilot

History:

Created circa 1958 by socialite, Steven Crane at his Polynesian-themed Luau Restaurant in Hollywood, USA. The Jet Piolet is a riff of Donn Beach's 1941 The Test Pilot cocktail. The two recipes are very similar but the Jet Pilot benefits from the addition of grapefruit juice and cinnamon syrup.
