Hawaiian Martini

READY IN: 144hrs
Recipe by Loves2Teach

Roy Yamaguchi's national chain of Hawaiian fusion restaurants serves a martini that will have you singing "Tiny Bubbles" with your imaginary monkey friend Cecil. Whole bottles of Skyy vodka, Stoli Vanil, and Malibu rum are dumped into a giant decanter along with some sugar and pineapple chunks. After three days, when all the hunks of pineapple are floating, the cocktail's ready to be served -- shaken, not stirred -- in a chilled martini glass. Prepare in advance of your next swinging cocktail party since the recipe makes around 36 drinks.

Very excellent. It really doesn't need to set for 3 days. It is fantastic after 10 minutes! We couldn't wait! The key is to shake it with ice in a cocktail shaker until it's icy cold, then strain into a cold martini glass. So cool served in pretty martini glass with a skewer of the fresh pineapple slice! Fun served with Hawaiian-type appetizers.
