About this Cocktail

I was inspired by my batch of pineapple syrup to craft a fruit-forward Jet Pilot riff. Instead of the cinnamon-falernum duo, I opted for pineapple syrup-Don's Spices #2 (vanilla/allspice), and I split the base with tequila to complement the pineapple. For a name, I wanted something Polynesian and space themed, and I soon learned that fringe groups believe that aliens contributed to the culture on the French Polynesian island of Nuku Hiva.
