Halekulani Cocktail

Straight Malt Whiskey

From the House Without a Key Lounge in the Halekulani Hotel at Waikiki Beach circa 1930s, this citrus forward whiskey-based Tiki cocktail is a summer-time crowd pleaser. Just as easy to batch up as punch for a pool party as it is to shake up individually, The Halekulani is one of only a handful of non-rum based Tiki cocktails. The dry style of the PostModern American Single Malt Whiskey balances the sweeter citrus & Grenadine notes.
