Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum Featured in MauiTime Magazine

For this year’s Bar Issue, we talked with 21 local bartenders about where they work, their favorite drinks and where they like to go out. Oh, and because we’ve been on a kind of Bloody Mary kick lately, we asked them for their thoughts on the ultimate Bloody Mary. Enjoy!

(And please enjoy responsibly!)

TIM JONES, Hali‘imaile General Store: “We have an inviting, old school Hawaiian plantation atmosphere here at Hali‘imaile General Store. If I am sitting here I am ordering the Lemongrass ginger frost cocktail with coconut. One of my favorite Maui bars is Monkeypod because they serve ice cold draft beer. Come by my bar and I will make you a watermelon Mojito. I made it as a special this week with two ounces of fresh watermelon, two ounces Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, one ounce fresh lime juice, one ounce simple syrup and generous portion of fresh mint from our front garden. Muddle, shake and top with splash of soda water. Yumm! Our award-winning Tai Mai is made with local rum, fresh limes, homemade kaffir syrup and fresh local lilikoi. Charley’s has a Bloody Mary bar on Sundays that is great to enjoy while watching football. The spices and creative garnishes make their Bloody one of the best.”
