DIY/HI Aloha Friday: Okole Maluna (Bottoms Up!)
Today we’re going to teach you how to make a Hawaiian Highball. But that’s not all. We’re also providing a few tips about how to create a proper Hawaii cocktail vibe. To give your drink an extra kick. A little tiki-tacky perhaps, but as the great Hawaiian mixologist, Fletcher Woodcock, used to say: “Whatevah works.”
First, the recipe:
In a long, tall highball glass, combine 3 oz. Irish Whiskey (we prefer Bushmills but Jameson will do just fine), 2 teaspoons pineapple juice, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice — then fill with club soda. Stir gently and that’s it.
Now, before the toast, let’s create a little atmosphere. These VINTAGE, LIBBEY HIGHBALL GLASSES WITH A LOVELY TROPICAL THEME are de rigueur (click ebay – opening bid starts at $19.99):
You’ll also need an ALOHA TIKI COCKTAIL DRINKS SERVING PLATTER, just $6.49 at (you guessed it) ebay:
Some TROPICAL PARTY SHOT GLASSES? Why not. $9.99 at ebay:
And last but definitely not least, you’ll need something decorative to hang on the wall. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to resist this SIBERIAN HUSKY TIKI BAR COCKTAIL POP ART, available at ebay for just $16 (unless we get there first):
Now, drink up and enjoy the weekend. Okole Maluna!
