Bageechaa (Sustainability Garden) from Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa

The Bageechaa cocktail from Aura Pool Bar & Cocktail Lab at Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa (opening July 2022) is inspired by the zero-waste concept of throwing away fewer “leftovers” and using an ingredient to its full potential.

  • !  10 ml (0.33 oz) elderflower liqueur
  • !  50 ml (1.7 oz) The Botanist gin
  • !  3 fresh basil leaves
