If you are in the mood for a fruity cocktail made of rum, sugar, lime juice, pineapple and campari this might be a winner!
This fruity tiki drink was originally created in the 1970s in Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s Aviary Bar. Made of rum, sugar, lime juice, pineapple juice and Campari, this tropical cocktail has been recreated all around the world, but if you want to enjoy this sweet delight in native Malaysia, make sure you head to Aviary Bar’s replacement—the hip Zeta Bar or the glamours bar at the top of G Tower Hotel.
With its frothy texture and clean, bitter finish, this forgotten tiki classic might just be enough to put you in mind of a wave washing across a moonlit Malaysian beach. If you can’t get yourself to Manhattan, make it at home, with the same recipe they use at Lantern’s Keep.
