Most classic cocktails claiming allegiance to the Aloha State, like the Mai Tai, seem to have coconut or pineapple involved. This one isn’t classic but rather a reflection of the melting pot that’s modern Hawaii. It takes other fruit flavors that aren’t necessarily native but are quite popular in Hawaii—guava and lychee—and blends them with a fair amount of liquor, for a tropical drink that even the manliest of men can toss back with pride.
What to buy: Canned lychees can be found in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores or at Asian markets.
Maraschino liqueur is a relatively dry liqueur with a subtle bitter-almond flavor; it can be found at any well-stocked liquor store.
