Mixologist's Notes:
blending tea, color, and mood

“If you come to the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Pink Palace, you're thinking of a sun-soaked vacation. And what better way to express that mood of exoticism, than a pink take on Piña Colada by infusing Bacardi Superior rum with Monsoon Chai?”

- Robert Rouleau

The Ingredients
The Ingredients

“We were trying to create a spiced rum for our Piña Colada, and Monsoon Chai was perfect for infusing Bacardi Superior rum. Add in strawberry coconut puree and fresh pineapple juice, and we create the Pink Monsoon.”

Symbolism of the Elephants :

Elephants speak to the exotic nature and origins of our Monsoon Chai. Authentically steeped in the complexity of hand-ground cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and pepper, this chai pays tribute to every mother's stovetop.

“Trunks entwine, reflecting life-long bonds, while all-knowing ears fan compassionate eyes. Triumphant trumpeting echoes with the fading marsala sun.”
