A fan favorite at The Point Sunset & Pool Bar is the Strawberry Basilade. Of course, we aren’t surprised. The fresh strawberries and basil leaves really do make a refreshing combo that will have you sipping and saying, “aaaaaah.”

It doesn’t only taste good, it’s good for you. Studies show basil has several health benefits. One is that it actually combats stress by acting as an 'Adaptogen'. Adaptogens help the body to respond to stress and fight disease. However, We doubt you’ll need to combat stress while you are enjoying ocean views, swaying palms and sunny skies on Oahu’s North Shore.

Ask one of our friendly bartenders to serve you one at our pool bar. If you can’t be with us in paradise, you can always taste the aloha at home with your friends, thanks to our secret recipe below.


  • 1 ¼ shot Tangueray
  • 1 shot Lime Sour
  • 1 shot Strawberry Puree
  • 1 shot Club Soda
  • 3-5 Fresh Basil Sprigs

Mix and Share the Aloha:

1. Mash and add fresh basil to the bottom of the glass.
2. Add in all the ingredients.
3. Garnish with fresh basil, a lime and cherry.
4. Sip and say, “Aaaaah.” Bye bye stress.
