#ThirstyThursday: Island Thyme

There’s a popular saying here in the islands if someone is not punctual, it is “Hawaiian time.”

What does it mean to be on Hawaiian time? Basically, life in Hawaii is more relaxed than the rest of the world, so you take your time to get places and show up on “Hawaiian time.”

That is the inspiration for the Island Thyme cocktail created by Turtle Bay Master Mixologist Allie Bellows.

Have her serve one up for you while you enjoy the breathtaking views and relaxed atmosphere of our fine dining restaurant Pa’akai.

If you can’t be here in person to enjoy our “Island Thyme” cocktail, you can still savor a relaxed Hawaii vibe at home with our featured #ThirstyThursday recipe.

It’s time for you to get on Island Thyme!
