Hoku Hele – A Tiki Cocktail to Warm Up Winter

Better late than never, here’s my humble contribution to #tikithesnowaway (a month of celebrating tiki on Instagram). I’m just beginning to learn about the wonderful world of rum, so I anticipate many more tiki drinks to come. The name Hoku Hele is Hawaiian for ‘wandering star’. ?


  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 oz dark rum
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz coconut water
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz sage + cinnamon syrup

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of starfruit.
