Hey guys,We are back with a new episode from you guys via internet due to lockdown. We will be discussing the Hawaiian Eye Cocktail on this show. This is adrink not created by Don the Beachcomber or Trader Vic but instead by Harry Yee. He is still alive (yes, he is) at the age of 101 years old this year...WOW!!! This man is famous for creating in Hawaii some famous tiki cokctails such as Blue Hawaii cocktail which is one of Poala's favorite drink. This drink was created for the TV show "Hawaiian Eye" back in the late 50s at the Hawaiian Village Hotel.This hotel was home to the tv crew and other tv shows such as Hawaii-50 and Elvis Presley's "Blue Hawaii".This cocktail has three different rums in it: white rum, Jamacian dark rum, and Bermuda rum. This drink also has grapefruit juice and a erotic guava juice. This juice more than likely will be commercial when you go look for it. What is guava fruit? Listen to find out!!!To get the recipe for this drink and all of our drinks click the following link:https://tikicentralcanada.ca/recipes/We got the recipe from Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's Sippin Safari book.Harry Yee was a bartender who was the first to use an orchid or an umbrella...find out why he used an orchid for garnish.
