Art of the Cocktail

September 21st, 2010

Master mixologists from around the globe converged on Halekulani last weekend for a three-day seminar on how to make and appreciate mixed drinks. "King Cocktail" Dale DeGroff came in from New York, with his wife Jill, a graphic artist. He's recognized as the world's premiere mixologist.

Former local gal Julie Reiner also came in from New York, where she lives and works. She co-owns Flatiron Lounge and Clover Club, and Pegu Club.

Tony Abou-Gamin, Simon Ford, Chandra Lam, and Halekulani's own Tim Rita rounded out the group of guest bartenders. They spent the weekend either mixing drinks or showing people how to!
