This tiki recipe uses a lacto-passionfruit honey

“Bartenders are always on the lookout for new flavours and creative outlets,” Rohan Massie says. 

“Fermentation is one of the key ways I do this. Fermentation takes a flavour that everyone is familiar with and gives it complexity and depth. It’s a bartender’s chance to extract even more flavour out of everyday ingredients and keep our guests intrigued.”

Massie is the ambassador for The House of Angostura; get his recipe for lacto-passionfruit honey below.

Passion In The Heat Of The Night

  • 25 ml Angostura Reserva Rum

  1. Swizzle in your favourite Tiki mug, garnish with passionfruit husk and fresh honeycomb.

This is a twist on Don the Beachcomber’s Waikiki cocktail.
