Tropical Itch Cocktail: A Hilton First

Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort bartender Harry Yee is renowned for the many cocktails he invented during his 30-year tenure. One of his most popular drinks is the Tropical Itch, a passion-fruit based cocktail served with a bamboo backscratcher.

To cure your itch at home, start by filling a hurricane glass with ice and pouring in bourbon, 151 rum, and orange curaçao. Mix the passion fruit juice and shake well. Float dark rum and bitters on top. Don’t forget to top it off with a bamboo backscratcher!
