Lono’s Benedictine


Maka Zai White Rum (or any white rum) - 45ml

Falernum liqueur - 15ml (a sweetened lime and spice concoction that was created in Barbados somewhere between 1826 and 1930. You'll see both syrups and liqueurs referred to as falernum, but the key ingredients are always lime zest, cloves, and sugar—usually combined with ginger and almonds or almond extract.)

Fresh Lime Juice - 15ml

Kaffir lime syrup - 10ml

Kaffir lime - 3no.

Herbostura bitters- 3 Dash

Garnish- Kaffir lime, edible flowers and Star Anise


In a shaker tin, add all the ingredients, stir it well and then add ice and shake it well.

Strain and pour the shaken mix into a chilled old fashioned glass.

Fill up the mug with crushed ice and garnish it with fresh kaffir lime leaves, edible flowers, and star anise.
