Mostly As – Piña Colada
You love all the iconic sights, sounds and tastes of Hawai‘i, including the classic Piña Colada. The combo of creamy coconut and sweet pineapple together is perfection – why fix something that isn't broken, right? Cue the blender! 


Mostly Bs – Lava Flow and Piña Primera 
A fan of Hawai‘i, you want to try everything the island of O‘ahu has to offer. You're up for a little twist on tradition, such as a Lava Flow cocktail (a Piña Colada with an added swirl of strawberry purée as a tribute to the lava which formed the Hawaiian Island chain). You'll also be tempted by the Pakini Bar's exclusive Piña Primera, created by our bartender Lewis Somera. His creation adds chocolate rum to the mix! 


Mostly Cs – Mango Heaven, Red, White, & Boujee, and Notorious P.O.G.
You're always looking for something new, something unique, and you're in luck. Each month this summer, the Pakini Bar features a special, limited-time blended beverage. In July, order up the Mango Heaven, a handcrafted creation by bartender Dennis Yeoman. Think: Island Oasis mango & ice cream, orange juice, Malibu Rum, and peach schnapps with a li hing mui rim. For the Fourth of July holiday, only a patriotic drink will do. Enter the Red, White, & Boujee with Island Oasis strawberry & ice cream, Blue Curacao, and SelvaRey White Rum. August gets fruity with the Notorious P.O.G. cocktail created by bartender Ethan Kimura, featuring Island Oasis guava & passion fruit, orange juice, and SelvaRey White Rum.
