Perfect Drink® recipe

Test Pilot

A daringly delicious blend of rums, lime, curaçao and falernum, this drink is truly a testament to the mixological mastery of Don the Beachcomber, who developed this drink in 1941 at his classic Hollywood bar. The one-two punch of bitters and Pernod lend a lot of complexity in just a few drops.
