Test Pilot

Test Pilot cocktail with dark rum, light rum, falernum, triple sec, Angostura bitters, anise liqueur, and lime juice

The Test Pilot is a classic tiki drink from Don the Beachcomber that harkens back to at least 1941. It’s a delicious relic of the age of hotshot pilots and the seemingly-far-off dreams of space travel.

The original recipe probably called for falernum syrup, but you can use falernum liqueur if that’s what you’ve got.
