Day 90. Jet Pilot

One of the most complex Tiki drinks I’ve learned to make is the Jet Pilot. It certainly has the most ingredients, and rivals the Zombie for most rum. And you have to mix it in a blender. This drink was created by Stephen Crane for his Beverly Hills restaurant, The Luau, around 1958. Crane was an actor turned restaurateur who went on to found the Kon Tiki chain, to compete with Trader Vic’s and Don The Beachcombers. He was also famous for being married to Lana Turner (twice) and linked to many other Hollywood starlets. To me, the Jet Pilot is Stephen Crane’s tastiest legacy.
