Tiki Tuesday: Jamaican A Jet Pilot?

I made fassionola and you can too! Read through the Atomic Grog, you'll figure it out! I was going to present to you the Cobra's Fang or a reasonable facsimile but I think Kevin, Fred, and Andrea have that covered. Covered quite well. Besides, who would want to drink a Massasauga Rattlesnake? Instead lets take a drink many know and love (and which may be an excellent prototype with which to introduce friends to tiki) and put it through the ringer!

First we're not going to make the Luau drink. Second we're not even really going to make the Mai Kai drink. Third pay attention and you'll see what we do. (I'm a "we" now??)

Served in a Polynesian Palace Don Ho glass we serve a tribute (#bastardizen?) to Hurricane Hayward's tribute to the Mai Kai's...

Jet Pilot
1 oz lime juice
0.75 oz 2:1 honey mix
0.125 oz falernum
0.125 oz fassionola
0.75 oz Havana Club Anejo Blanco*
0.75 oz Smith & Cross
0.75 oz Myers's
1 dash Angostura bitters
3 drops absinthe (Clandestine)

1 cup crushed ice
0.75 oz 151*

Combine first nine ingredients with ice and blend until tiki-frothy. Pour into a DOF. Add more ice as you see fit. Float overproof rum on top.*

Come at me sideways rude boy!

*You could go All-Jamaican with Appleton white and J.Wray....
