Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur is a handcrafted beverage made from distilled spirits and real passion fruit from our dedicated farms in the Dominican Republic. Through our unique blend and proprietary formulation, we have created a ‘natural’ liqueur with unparalleled taste and versatility. It can be consumed by itself or mixed with a base spirit, wine or sparkling wine to create a top-quality cocktail.

Chinola Hurricane recipe!

Official recipe from Sazerac's website
Sazerac Cocktail
  • 1 Cube Sugar (in stock)
  • 1 1/2 ounces of Rye Whiskey (plenty of great rye in stock, unfortunately we cannot get Sazerac Rye)
  • 1/4 ounce of Herbsaint  (in stock)
  • 3 dashes of Peychaud's Bitters  (in stock)
  • lemon peel 

Pack an Old-Fashioned glass with ice.
In a second Old-Fashioned glass place the sugar cube and add the Peychaud's Bitters to it, then crush the sugar cube.
Add the Whiskey to the second glass containing the Peychaud's Bitters and sugar.
Empty the ice from the first class and coat the glass with the Herbsaint, then discard the remaining Herbsaint.
Empty the whiskey/bitters/sugar mixture from the second glass into the first glass and garnish with lemon peel

(unfortunately we cannot get Sazerac Rye to offer to make this drink)
