SPOT TO “LIVING 808” IS TEAMING UP WITH DECK TO SHOWCASE THE HOTTEST SPOT TO MEET UP IN WAIKIKI. WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE? VIEW OF DIAMOND HEAD, FREE PARKING AND AN OPEN LANAI TO ENJOY A DRINK OR TWO INCLUDING A FRESH TWIST ON A CLASSIC COCKTAIL. YOU KNOW WE LOVE OUR FOOD AND BEVERAGES ON “LIVING 808” AND WE HAD TO COME OUT TO CHECK OUT ONE OF OUR NEW PARTNERS AND ONE OF THE NEW HOT SPOTS IN WAIKIKI, DECK. ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO GET A VIEW OF DIAMOND HEAD AND A GREAT DRINK. I’M HERE WITH THE GUY THE BAR, ZACH, THE LEAD MIXOLOGIST. ALOHA. THANK YOU FOR COMING. YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES THAT SPOT TO SPECIAL. EVERYONE WANTS TO GRAB A DRINK IN WAIKIKI BUT DECK IS THE SPOT TO DO IT. OUR VIEW, UNFORTUNATE — I’M FORTUNATE TO HAVE THIS AS MY OFFICE. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL VIEW. IN ADDITION TO THAT THERE’S A LOT OF BUILDING’S BEEN HERE SINCE THE 60s. SO MUCH IT’S KIND OF NICE THAT THEY DECIDED TO BROTH SOME NEW LIFE INTO IT. KIND OF TAKES US BACK IN TIME ALMOST WHETHER YOU SET FOOT ON THIS PROPERTY. OF LOCALS FINDING MORE REASONS TO COME TO WAIKIKI TO ENJOY THIS AND PART OF IT IS BECAUSE THE SPACE AND ALSO BECAUSE THE DRUNKS. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR SPECIALS HERE? THE ONE DRINK WE’RE BEST KNOWN FOR IS OUR HOUSE MI MI MAITAI. IT’S MORE CITRUSY AND NOT AS SWEET. DEFINITELY MORE REFRESHING THAN THE SWEETER VERSIONS OF THE DRINK. SO WE LIKE TO MAKE A LOT OF THOSE HERE AND OUR GUESTS ENJOY THEM THOROUGHLY. CAN YOU WALK ME THROUGH THE PROCESS? OF COURSE, YES. WE’LL GET OUR MIXING TINS HERE FIRST. THE FIRST INGREDIENT WE’RE GOING TO ADD IS GOING TO BE — THEY CAN BE PRONOUNCED MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. IT’S AN ALMOND FLAVORED SWEETENER. SO WE’RE GOING TO ADD A THIRD OF AN OUNCE TO OUR TIN. WE LIKE TO DIFFERENTIATE OURS BY MAKING OUR EVEN CURACAO IN HOUSE. OUR THIRD INGREDIENT IS GOOD OLD LIME JUICE. IT’S IMPORTANT TO USE FRESH LIME JUICE. IT’S GOING TO MAKE THE DRINK THAT MUCH MORE DELICIOUS. THAT’S A LOT OF LIMES YOU SQUEEZE TO MAKE THAT WORK. IT’S A LOT OF WORK. YOU’RE GOING TO ADD AN OUNCE AND A HALF OF THIS. THIS IS MADE OF THREE DIFFERENT RUMS. WHICH IS ON THE ISLAND. WE’RE GOING TO DO AN OUNCE AND A HALF OF THAT. LOOK OUR TINS TOGETHER. GIVE IT A GOOD SHAKE. NOT TOO MUCH NOW. WE DON’T WANT TO OVER-DILUTE THE DRINK. OPEN IT UP. GET SOME ICE IN OUR ROCKS GLASS HERE. NICE TRADITIONAL THAT’S RIGHT. WE’VE GOT A FANCY ROCKS GLASS FOR THIS FANCY DRINK. OH BOY. I THINK I’D ORDER THIS BUT I WOULD WANT TO TRY THE OTHER DRINKS THAT YOU’VE BEEN MAKING HERE BEHIND THE BAR TOO. WE CAN DO THAT. OKAY. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF OUR OTHER POPULAR COCKTAILS, OUR SIGNATURE COCKTAILS. THIS ONE HERE IS OUR HONOLULU COSMO AND SO IT’S BASED ON THE ORIGINAL COSMOPOLITAN RECIPE. WE CHANGE IT UP A BIT. IT’S A LITTLE MORE FRUITY AND TROPICAL. WE’VE GOT SOME PINEAPPLE JUICE IN THERE, SOME LILIKOI JUICE AND EVEN WATERMELON JUICE IN THERE TOO. WOW, THAT’S VERY UNIQUE. I LOVE THAT. CAN PEOPLE EXPERIENCE FOR HAPPY HOURS SOME DIFFERENT COCKTAILS HERE. YES, WE DO — DAILY WE HAVE HAPPY HOUR AND WE EVEN DO A BARTENDER’S SPECIAL CREATION EACH NIGHT DURING HAPPY HOUR WHERE WE TRY TO MIX THINGS UP A LITTLE BIT EVERY NIGHT ESSENTIALLY. I DON’T WANT TO ONE TO BE LEFT OUT. IT’S TOO BEAUTIFUL NOT TO TASTE. WHAT IS THIS? THIS IS OUR HOUSE RUM AND COLA. WE MAKE OUR OWN COLA SYRUP HERE. WE’RE GOING TO ADD THAT TO SOME CARBONATED WATER. A LITTLE BIT OF LITTLE BIT OF LIME JUICE IN THERE AS WELL AND THEN A SPICED RUM, SAILOR JERRY’S SPICED RUM. CHEERS. IT’S CALLED DECK. WE’RE GOING TO BE FEATURING A LOT OF THE MENU HERE. WE ALSO HAVE MUSIC COMING UP WITH JOSH. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US OUT. MAHALO. CHEERS. LUCKY YOU. I KNOW, THERE’S COCKTAILS WAITING FOR YOU.
