Combining butterscotch and coffee flavour with a choc-nut garnish my cocktail is inspired by the word pilot in all senses, from one who controls an aircraft to a test or experiment of something with either meaning invoking excitement and adventure. In summary I was inspired by both work and play and the reasonable balance of both.
