Cocktail of the Week Taster

Cocktail taster?  Is there such a position?  Well, at the Hawthorne Hotel there is.  It is an honorary position here at the Hawthorne Hotel, the result of a contest we ran a few months ago.

This month the winning taster is Jaime Harrison.  She was in this week to try our Surfer's Sunrise, and she took some photos, not only of her drink, but also of the special she ordered.

The Surfer's Sunrise consists of Pinnacle orange vodka, orange juice, pineapple juice, and a splash of grenadine

Jerk-rubbed shrimp kebab with fresh vegetables and steamed lemon rice.
Here is what Jaime has to say about the Surfer's Sunrise:

If you have a sweet tooth, the Surfer's Sunrise is the cocktail for you.  Made of Pinnacle Orange vodka, orange juice, pineapple juice, and a splash of grenadine, this drink will take you direct to ( insert your favorite tropical vacation spot here.)
The Surfer's Sunrise pairs amazingly well with the Locals' weekly special of Jerk Shrimp Skewers, lemon scented rice, and summer squash.  All that was missing was the shade from the thatched roof of the tiki bar and the breeze off of Hanalei Bay - not a bad little escape from the everyday!
 For those that don't tend to go sweet for cocktails - think dessert - and give the Surfer's Sunrise a spin.  The packed-punch of orange vodka mixed with orange juice in this week's cocktail reminiscent of a summer time favorite - the creamcicle!  I hear the luring song of the ice cream truck pretty much every evening around 7 or 8pm.  Next time I hear the familiar tune, I'll run over to the Hawthorne for a Surfer's Sunrise instead!
 Next week we hope to get photos of her!!!
