Cocktails & Dreams: The Charlie Chan in Waikiki

Today I’m dreaming of a hot summer night, scent of orchids, feeling my husband’s hand in mine… Listening to Hawaiian music under the century-old Kiawe tree in the Halekuni’s House Without A Key outdoor restaurant in Waikiki, Hawaii, and enjoying one of their new cocktails this summer.

The House without a Key is Halekulani’s popular indoor/outdoor gathering spot immortalized in a 1925 Charlie Chan novel,and it’s one of the favored traditions of the original Halekulani.

The Charlie Chan

1 ½ oz Barsol Pisco (Primero)
½ oz Orchid Guava Liqueur
½ oz Strawberry Puree
½ oz Lime Juice

Shake all ingredients with ice. Serve straight up into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with half strawberry on the rim and kafir lime leaf.
