Jekyll & HydeThis cocktail takes inspiration from the 1886 classic novel, where the kind and respected scientist Dr. Jekyll experiments with a secret serum and transforms into Mr. Hyde, the evil, self-indulgent and uncaring antithesis. Experience the first sips of bright, sweet and tart pineapple rum, then taste as it transforms into a different cocktail as the smoked tea ice cube melts.
