Do you like it hot? It’s time to spice up your life with our signature Spicy Pineapple cocktail. This drink combines sweet and juicy Hawaiian pineapple with fiery jalapeno. The zesty concoction will have your taste buds dancing the tango. Not to mention, it’s packed with nutrients.
First of all, Pineapple is chock full of several health benefits due to its nutrient content. It contains bromelain, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, and soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. The vitamins in these fruits include vitamin A, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6, and folate, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database.
Get ready to enjoy some aloha at home with Turtle Bay Resort's Hapa cocktail. The Hapa is a drink that will surprise and delight you with its uplifting tropical flavors and refreshing hint of mint.
First of all, what does hapa even mean? The term originates here in Hawaii from the Hawaiian word for "half", "part", or "mixed". Hapa basically refers to any person of mixed ethnic heritage. The Hapa cocktail at Turtle Bay Resort gets its name from it’s unlikely mix of coconut and mint. The unique cocktail does have people going nuts over it’s creamy blend of coconut paired with fresh sprigs of mint.

Who doesn’t love a margarita? One of the best things about the strong cocktail is that the flavors are endless. The margarita — triple sec, tequila, and lime juice — was created in 1938 in Mexico and is widely considered the official drink of having fun.
At Turtle Bay Resort we have your traditional margarita or you can add some aloha with mango or passion fruit. Of course, we also have strawberry margaritas too.
It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, so why not make one of our signature Turtle Bay margaritas at home!?
