Tropical Cocktails for Your Oahu Luau
May 7th, 2019
One of the first things that you’ll be ready for at your Oahu luau is an ice cold, refreshing drink. Luaus typically feature a limited drink selection, offering beer, wine, and an assortment of mixed drinks that are considered specialties in Hawaii. Colorful drinks are a common site on the tables of luaus and in the hands of guests of the luaus, and always so tasty. When it is especially warm outside, these refreshing drinks are a must.
Tropical cocktails for your Oahu Luau:
This is one of the drinks that is the most closely associated with Hawaii. A mixture of white rum, juices, and a float of dark rum creates one of the most popular drinks in Hawaii and certainly the most popular drink at a luau.
There is something that is especially refreshing about a Pina Colada. You can always take this drink a step further and make it a lava flow, adding strawberry puree to the bottom of the glass to create a beautiful frozen drink. This may not be offered at every Oahu luau, but if it is, you will want to order one. These are also very popular at restaurants around Oahu, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to have one. Pina Coladas are made by combining white rum, coconut mix, pineapple juice, ice, and blended.
Sometimes, you don’t need a lot of ingredients to make a delicious drink. Pour white rum and pineapple juice over ice and float blue curacao on the top, watching it ease its way through the drink. You may find this drink blended or served in a martini glass with a pineapple garnish. This drink was invented in Hawaii and its roots run deep throughout the islands.
Similar to a Mai Tai, the Bahama Mama is a combination of white rum, dark rum, coconut rum, and juices, packing quite the punch. Enjoy this refreshing drink prior to the luau and take in the views before the fun and entertainment begin.
Each Oahu luau differs in what they offer for refreshing cocktails, and if you are looking for something a little different, just ask the bartender for their specialty. A refreshing cocktail is well earned on this trip, and most of Oahu’s luaus include complimentary drink tickets with admission. Grab your drink, enjoy the scent of your fresh flower lei, and enjoy the evening at your Oahu luau. And always drink responsibly.
