Test Pilot

  • Base Spirit Rum
  • Preparation Blended
  • Flavor Fruity
  • Served Blended

The Test Pilot is a tiki classic credited to the godfather, himself, Don the Beachcomber. One of Beachcomber’s beloved “rum rhapsodies” forms the base for the drink. The pastas and bitters serve to balance out the drink. The result is an incredibly smooth sip packing a very alcoholic punch.

(The adventurous should check out the Test Pilot’s cousin, the Jet Pilot.)
