Amanyara

This blended riff on the Mojito eliminates the need for all that labor-intensive muddling and also prevents pieces of mint from getting stuck in your teeth. It’s the best-selling cocktail at Amanyara resort on the Turks & Caicos island of Providenciales and was created to reflect the property’s elegance and sense of design.
