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.
