Drink of the Week (lifestyle and culture)

REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle


AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Drink of the Week, by Drink of the Week


BLOG DESCRIPTION: Drink of the Week is an enjoyable bar blog that offers delicious drink recipes on a weekly basis, in addition to advice and information about bar supplies.

MY REVIEW: I've never liked the taste of alcohol, so I can't really give an informed opinion of the recipes offered from this blog. However, it's clear the author(s) know what they're talking about, and they talk about a great variety of things.

So if you're in to fine food and fine liquors, give this blog a chance.

Pau Hana Friday Original Cocktails: The Kilauea from Maui – Not Pink, Not White(Here's our regular Friday tropical cocktail from Hawaii from our friends at Hawaiirama)

It's a pretty neat trick to bring a volcano to your bar. But no, a pink-and-white lava flow cocktail is definitely not evocative of a volcano. Ask anyone who has walked next to the glowing molten rock. So Allan Labayo, bartender at the posh Grand Wailea Resort in Wailea, Maui decided to right this wrong by making a volcanic cocktail with a proper color palate that packed even more punch. He came up with the drink as part of an in-house bartending competition and it was a flaming hit with visitors to the bar. Here's the tale of the recipe tape

3oz Sweet & Sour
3oz Mango Puree
1oz Strawberry Puree
¼ slice of banana
1.5 oz Absolut Wild Tea Vodka

Blend sweet & sour, banana, and mango puree with Absolut Wild Tea Vodka. In a tropical glass, place strawberry puree at the bottom. Pour blended ingredients into the glass to obtain a swirl affect. Drink slowly to avoid simultaneous excessive libation pleasure inducement.
