Hawaiian Sunset

Hawaiian Sunset

The Hawaiian Sunset is a rare vodka-based tiki cocktail, hailing from the now-defunct Aku Aku Polynesian Restaurant at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas. The recipe was reprinted in the Smuggler’s Cove book, a treasure trove of tiki drinks.

It’s a lovely cocktail, and so easy to drink. The orgeat-grenadine-citrus combo has a candy-esque flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet. It’s a simple, delicious little tropical sour.

Cocktail Party is so much better

I've tried so many cocktail apps and uninstalled them all after hours of frustration. Cocktail Party is so much better. Beautiful UI, very intelligent suggestions, easy to follow recipes. A winner 100%.
