The Dominican Republic has a passion for passion fruit. So do the Florida spirits connoisseurs who created Chinola, a deliciously sweet ‘n’ tangy, all-natural liqueur with the juice of six passion fruits in each bottle. It’s lovely to sip on its own and plays well with others, like rum, vodka, tequila, and bubbly.
