Montego Bay

Montego Bay

Montego Bay is another Donn Beach creation from the 1940s. It is a far less complex “watered” down version of a Jet Pilot cocktail. You still get the distinct flavor profile of the Jet Pilot, so if you are in the mood for something more complex and a bit more strong and intoxicating, compare this to the Jet Pilot recipe, you will see, the ingredients are almost identical. You just need more rum and the falernum.  CREDIT: Beachbum Berry Intoxica + Total Tiki App.
