3 Island-Inspired Sips to Toast the 4th This Week

| July 4, 2019 | Food & Drink


Kiawe shavings and vanilla smoke add complexity to Woodford Reserve bourbon, Benedictine, Cardamaro and bitters, but the Logsdon's appeal is in the presentation. After taking a blowtorch to a snifter to release smoke, a mixologist pours chilled spirits into a carafe. LUANA, Fairmont Kea Lani, 4100 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, 875.4100

Mai Tai
Justin Park's award-winning E Ho'o Pau Mai Tai is the ultimate farm-to-cocktail indulgence. Coconut water syrup and Ohia blossom honey balance the smokey aged rum and absinthe in this boozy craft concoction. Bottoms up. Bar Leather Apron, 745 Fort St., Ste. 127A, Honolulu, 524.0808

Hawaiian 75
Pomegranate juice and locally grown lilikoi puree add Hawaiian flavor to the classic French gin-Champagne cocktail reimagined by the impeccable Morimoto team. The combination of spectacular colors and effervescence make this an Insta-worthy drink. Morimoto Asia, 2490 Kalakaua Ave., Honolulu, 922.0022
