Episode 43: Kahana Royale Macadamia Nut Liqueur

Episode 43 features Kahana Royale Macadamia Nut Liqueur, a spirit whose story mostly eluded me and whose flavor I wasn't a fan of. Bottled at 750mL and 21% ABV, or 42 proof, it retails for about $15.

Enjoy this episode and let me know if you agree with my sentiments! Have something to add to the story? Let me know and I may update this episode.

Kahana Royale's official website: None

Brief Historical Timeline:

  • 1980s - ? Maybe this is when Kahana Royale was launched
  • 1990s - ? LeVecke Corporation acquires the brand
  • 2010 - I bought this bottle in Maui

Key Cocktails:

Kahana Royale is best served in a tropical mixed drink, or add it to some coffee. It's not great on its own.

Kahana Colada:

  • 1.25 oz. Kahana Royale Macadamia Nut Liqueur
  • 0.75 oz. Meyers Rum
  • 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 3 oz. Coconut Syrup
  • 3 oz. Coconut Milk

Combine all the ingredients with ice in a blender. Blend and serve. Be sure to include a cocktail umbrella!
