Here’s our regular Friday tropical cocktail from Hawaii from our friends at Hawaiirama.
It’s a pretty neat trick to bring a volcano to your bar. But no, a pink-and-white lava flow cocktail is definitely not evocative of a volcano. Ask anyone who has walked next to the glowing molten rock. So Allan Labayo, bartender at the posh Grand Wailea Resort in Wailea, Maui decided to right this wrong by making a volcanic cocktail with a proper color palate that packed even more punch. He came up with the drink as part of an in-house bartending competition and it was a flaming hit with visitors to the bar. Here’s the tale of the recipe tape
3 oz sweet & sour
3 oz mango puree
1 oz strawberry puree
¼ slice of banana
1.5 oz Absolut Wild Tea Vodka
Blend sweet & sour, banana, and mango puree with Absolut Wild Tea Vodka. In a tropical glass, place strawberry puree at the bottom. Pour blended ingredients into the glass to obtain a swirl affect. Drink slowly to avoid simultaneous excessive libation pleasure inducement.
