Honolua Flower

This modern cocktail captures the majesty of tropical flowers. We infused 7 year Flor de Caña rum with our Black Metallic tea with violet and elderberry notes. The violet intensifies the natural floral notes of banana liqueur. A dose of sherry adds a delicate saline note. This extravagant drink is guaranteed to impress your guests.

Recipe is for 1 drink.
Tea-infused rum makes enough for 2 drinks.
Allow 30 minutes for rum infusion.
