Lilikoi Mule Cocktail Recipe


This New Year’s Eve, throw out everything you know about celebratory cocktails. We’re changing up the game from champagne and winter cheer to tropical cocktails in paradise. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? 

The Reef Bar & Market Grill, Waikiki’s favorite new place for beachfront dining, is sharing their most popular cocktail recipe: the Lilikoi Mule. It’s a take on the trendy Moscow Mule that’s typical made from vodka and ginger beer. Our version brings a little sunshine into the mix with homemade lilikoi (passion fruit) foam and a pineapple garnish.

If you can’t make it into Waikiki to enjoy this cocktail at midnight, try it from your own living room. It’s almost as nice. Either way, the Lilikoi Mule cocktail will help make your New Year’s Eve extra. 

Here’s to a safe night with tropical vibes and a fabulous 2018!
