Dazoo Restaurant is Maui’s best kept secret for hand-crafted cocktails, but with bloggers like ‘EZdrinking’ discovering this Paia restaurant and spreading the word, the secret is soon to be out.
Dazoo is gaining attention for their creative cocktails using fresh squeezed, locally sourced juices and Maui made liquors. This month, they are launching Pau Vodka Night, on Wednesday, July 16, from 5-7pm.
On the third Wednesday of each month, Dazoo’s talented team of bartenders, lead by Jimmy Shoemaker, will create four new cocktails featuring Pau Vodka (crafted using Maui pineapples just up the road in Haliimaile) and other local ingredients.
Pau Vodka’s master distiller Mark Nigbur will also be at the event, to answer questions and entertain the crowds!
I was invited to sample and photograph the cocktails (its a rough job, but someone has to do it!) to help promote the upcoming event, and all I can say is I’ve already made my reservations (and you should too!).
In July, the featured cocktails will be:
“Everything in this cocktail is either roasted, grilled, dried, or infused with heat in some way!”
Pau Vodka, pickled pineapple with Hawaiian chili peppers by Maui Preserved, grilled oranges, roasted and creamed coconut (courtesy of the bakers at Moana Bakery), dried nutmeg
“Enjoy the flavors of the summer, just like you are back in Grandpa’s rocking chair”
Pau Vodka, house made strawberry shrub, thai basil, lime juice, rhubarb bitters
Da Suzie Experience
“Suzie is a little bit sweet, a little tangy…”
Pau Vodka, Lillet (a floral fortified wine), Cava sparkling wine, Upcountry grapefruit juice, lime juice, celery bitters
Tao of Pau
“The path to relaxation”
Pau Vodka, St. Germain, fresh blackberries, lemon juice, mint garnish
