Winter weather in Hawaii can be considered mild by many we wanted to share a cold version of “hot” buttered rum cocktail by Keith Mallini, General Manager of Rays on the Bay at Sheraton Kona, Hawaii Island. This recipe can be found on their new bar menu along with some other delicious new cocktails. We suggest inviting a few friends and watch the sunset and ask Keith to make this cocktail for you…with or without the winter weather.
