The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa’s ‘Dhon Kulhi’

It would be fair to say that the Maldives’ summertime is far more gratifying and reliable than ours in the United Kingdom. Named after the Dhonakulhi Island in the north of the Maldives, this week’s featured cocktail recipe – ‘Dhon Kulhi’ – was created by mixologist Jayson Santos Del Rosario for the island’s luxurious Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa. What’s more, the bartender has also won the Grape Expectation Bartender’s Challenge for 2016, as well as having participated in the 25th APAC Bartender of the Year Cocktail Competition in Singapore. Featuring a rum base, combined with elderflower liqueur, passion fruit and ginger purée, this promisingly refreshing cocktail is great to recreate at home throughout the rest of summer, and ideal for (rare) warm summer evenings.


White rum, 40ml

Elderflower liqueur, 20ml

Passion fruit purée, 40ml

Ginger purée, 20ml

Lemon juice, 30ml

To Garnish
