Ka'anapali Beach Hotel

Best Bartender Ka'anapali : Dale Simonson at Tiki Bar
In an island area of West Maui that draws many transplants and seasonal employees, Dale Simonson’s longevity at 40 years behind a bar is amazing. But top that with his expertise at making tropical drinks and his friendly attitude and the Tiki Bar may just become your favorite Maui hang-out too.

Dale is said to know all of his world-wide visitors by name and some will make certain he’ll be manning his tropical “ libation- station” before they book their Maui vacation at the very Hawaiian Ka’anapali Beach Hotel. Here is his recipe for the popular Blue Hawaii:

· 14 oz. Hurricane glass

· 3 oz. ice in hurricane glass

· 1 ½ oz. Vodka

· 2 oz. Sweet & Sour mix

· 3 oz. Pineapple Juice

· Top with 1 ½ oz. Blue Curacao

Dont forget the umbrella and floating orchid!
