Rediscover The Long-Lost Saturn Cocktail, A Rare Tiki Drink Using Gin

Few classic tiki drinks use only gin. The Saturn, created in 1967 and rediscovered by tiki scholar Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, is one such cocktail. It employs Aviation gin—milder than London dry, with a sarsaparilla quality—as well as Falernum, a rum-based liqueur with notes of ginger, lime, and cloves.
