If you take all of the rum and juices into account, the Jet Pilot is the epitome of a tropical drink. Then, there are the interesting flavor accents - cinnamon, bitters, anise - that make this cocktail intriguing to the taste buds and an extraordinary frozen drink.
The combination of three styles of rum is key to making the Jet Pilot. There are also options available for the anise liqueur. While many people choose to go with Pernod or Herbsaint, there are an array of absinthes available to choose from. Whichever you go with, remember to keep the anise in check as it can easily overpower the drink's flavor.
Gather the ingredients.
In a blender, pour the rums, Pernod, grapefruit and lime juices, cinnamon syrup, falernum, and bitters. Add the crushed ice.
Blend on a fast speed for about 5 to 10 seconds.
Pour into a hurricane or margarita glass.
Garnish with a cherry. Serve and enjoy.
How Strong Is a Jet Pilot?
The Jet Pilot is not a weak drink by anyone's standards, particularly compared to other blended drinks. There is a lot of rum packed into this cocktail and the Pernod is just a small dose, but it doesn't help bring down the drink's strength. Once blended, the average Jet Pilot weighs in at around 16 percent ABV (32 proof).
