Top of Waikiki’s new Throwback to ’65 Cocktails
By Director of Mixology Jennifer Ackrill
Singapore Sling – Originated in the 1920’s at the Raffles Hotel, this is an updated variation of a long-lost recipe. It’s made with Broker’s London dry gin, Cherry Heering, Benedectine, lime, pineapple, Anhostura bitters and soda, serve tall. $14.
Western Whiskey Sour – Combining whiskey and tequila is a not so obvious combination
that, with jalapeno, makes this sour unforgettable. It’s made with Jim Beam bourbon, Olmeca Altos reposado tequila, lemon, egg whites, jalapeno tincture and cinnamon. $14 / $9 Happy Hour.
Pono Planter’s Punch – The addition of local hibiscus gives this Planter’s Rum Punch
recipe a tangy, modern flavor. It’s made with Appleton Reserve Jamaican rum, Plantation 3 star rum, lemon, lime, hibiscus and tiki bitters, served tall. $14.
Nihon Guava Gimlet – Lime gives this gimlet its name, while guava, Kikori Japanese rice whisky and Avua cachaca give the drink a fresh, new spin. It’s made with Kikori Japanese rice whisky, Avua cachaca, guava, lime and coriander syrup, served over cubed ice. $14.
