Nothing says vacation and relaxation like a cocktail concocted with influence from arguably the most paradisiacal place on the planet: Hawaii. Whether you’re just trying Hawaiian cocktails for the first time or are a self-proclaimed connoisseur, our list of the nine best Hawaiian drinks, courtesy of the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, are sure to give you the easing buzz and that sunny happiness you’re looking for.

Matching the tropical aesthetic of the far-out 50th state, Hawaiian alcoholic drinks integrate colorful fruits and will typically be quite sweet. Try complementing one of your creations (how about the Lava Lava?) with something savory — like a giant pretzel, for example. Or go with Kona Coffee-Tini for something a little bit off the beaten path.

Whatever your taste buds desire, read on for our list of Hawaiian drink recipes.
