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!
Coming to Hawaii and getting lei’d (the act of putting a flower lei over someone’s neck) come hand and hand. It’s the traditional way locals greet you to our tropical paradise. It’s aloha in action.
Well, if you need some aloha wherever you are, you may want to try making our Lei’d Back Lychee cocktail at home. If you are staying with us on Oahu’s laid back North Shore, stop by The Point Sunset & Pool Bar and one of our amazing bartenders will serve one up for ya.
1 ½ oz. Ocean Organic Vodka
1 oz. Soho Lychee
½ oz. House-made Agave Sour
2 ¼ oz. Fresh Pineapple Juice
