Mix up this refreshing tiki drink from New Riff Distillery. You’ll feel like royalty with the Royal Hawaiian in your hand as you sip on sweet pineapple. New Riff Distillery recommends you use their Kentucky Wild Gin  for flavors of Kentucky botanicals in the Ohio Valley. This gin adds an enriching the texture and flavor to the cocktail.
