I'm determined to get a bottle of two of Kohala Bay when I'm down there for Hukilau. I'm pouring over The Atomic Grog and threads on here for clues...

Folks going down to Hukilau should make it their mission to convince the makers/suppliers of Kohala that they could stand to make some $$$ if they'd just get the word out, yes???

I went to the Mai Kai last weekend and had a couple jet pilots...outstanding.

To me the difference with this versus the Beachbum recipe was a distinct taste of honey. Also, I didn't taste the presence of Lemon Hart Rum.

Last night I tried the following recipe with good results:

1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
1/2 oz falernum
1/2 oz honey mix
1 tsp cinnamon syrup
1 1/2 oz Bacardi gold rum
1 1/2 oz coruba rum
6 drops Pernod
dash angostura bitters


That sounds like a very tasty version, as soon as my next batch of falernum is ready I'm gonna try it!

As to the Jet Pilot at the Mai Kai.... no grapefruit.

Lime, passion, honey and four kinds of rum with the usual dash of bitters for good measure.

Chip, seriously? No grapefruit??? And is that passion fruit (juice) or passion fruit syrup?

Lately there has been some inconsistency with the bartenders at the Mai Kai. It just depends what night you go on. That being said when its Friday or Saturday night they are usually right on. There is no grapefruit juice in a proper Jet Pilot. Even with their Zombie there should only be a hint of it (part of a quasi-Don's Mix), but recently I had one there that was overpowering with grapefruit. I am not a fan of grapefruit juice either which is unfortunate. I am now opting for the 151 swizzle which is more like a 1934 Zombie than their namesake.

The Atomic Grog tribute Jet Pilots..both versions are great and what I stick with at home. I brought a liter of it pre-mixed with me to the Hukilau this year. I have a case of the big bottles of Kahula Bay Dark Rum now and that should last quite awhile.

Looking foreward to a great night at the Mai Kai

If anyone needs to know where to find Kohala Bay in South Florida, just send me a private message.
