Brough to you by the luxury establishment, Milaidhoo Island Maldives is this thoroughly exotic cocktail. Make this at home, and let the taste of island life transport you to the turquoise tides of the Maldives.

This cocktail is sure to take your mind to the powder-soft white sand beaches lapped by gin-clear waters and framed by tropical greenery that the Maldives is famous for. For armchair travelers keen to get their Indian Ocean to fix at home, this tropical beverage allows drinkers to envisage themselves at Milaidhoo – set over 13 acres atop the Baa Atoll’s beautiful UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. A firm favorite sundowner choice, The Passion is sweet with a zesty undertone, creating a refreshing twist on a classic.
