Test Pilot

Test Pilot

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a blender and add about a cupful of crushed ice. Blend at high speed for about five seconds. Pour unstrained into a short glass, adding more crushed ice to fill if needed. Garnish with a brandied cherry on a pick.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
