Hawaiian Sunset

Hawaiian Sunset cocktail with vodka, orgeat, lemon juice, lime juice, and grenadine

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 app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
