Signature Drink: Return to Paradise

By M+E Staff

Who can resist a cocktail with the name Return to Paradise? From costa Kitchen & Bar, the signature restaurant at Mar Monte Hotel in Santa Barbara, is a beverage we can’t wait to enjoy during a warm Southern California afternoon. Any time you’re in Santa Barbara is happy hour!


1.5oz SelvaRey White Rum
.5 ounce El Dorado 12-Year-Old Dark Rum
1 ounce pineapple juice
.5 ounce cinnamon syrup
.5oz lime juice
1 dash angostura bitters


Combine all ingredients in tin, shake with ice 5-7 seconds. Double strain into glass and fill with ice. Garnish with mint bouquet and orange peel.

From costa’s food & beverage team: “Playing off classic tiki flavors, this drink pairs vibrant white rum with rich earthy flavors of dark rum, tropical fruit, fresh lime, and a touch of spices to create a easy-to-drink, refreshing poolside sipper.”
