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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
