Mixologist's Notes:
Blending Tea + Color + 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, Director of Restaurants at The Beverly Hills Hotel

The Pink Monsoon

Intrigue is found in our signature pink; equal parts glamour and SoCal spice.

“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.”

- Robert Rouleau
