Originally, today’s Happy Hour drink was going to be ‘Ohana’s Mai Tai, because I have been thinking about the Polynesian Resort a lot the past few days. Mostly wishing I was there having drinks of course. But one of my Twitter friends posted the recipe to her travel site yesterday, so I didn’t want to post the same drink today. However, if you’re in the mood for an ‘Ohana Mai Tai right now, head over to @JennCMTravel’s site here for the recipe.
Instead, I’m going with another Polynesian drink from Kona Cafe, the Kona Cool Sundown.
Per Bartender Kate, this is a super easy one to make. Glass full of ice then:
2 oz Vodka
2 oz Chambord
Top with cranberry juice.
Garnish with an orange slice and cherry, and of course a pretty umbrella.
Also, though it’s not listed what kind of vodka they use on the menu, I’d pair that Chambord up with a nice top shelf vodka like it deserves.
Please, try this at home.
