Thirsty Thursday To A Tea…

1

In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of a much tastier kind. So without further ado, I present to you: Thirsty Thursday!

On our last day in Kauai, we decided to take a drive–all the way around the island.  Well, as far as the road would let us go (although–we did see the parts we couldn’t drive to by boat, so technically I’d say we made it completely around the island!).

As usually happens in a road trip, we reached a point where we were eager to stretch our legs.  Conveniently, we found a roadside drink truck advertising pineapple tea.  How does one say no to pineapple tea in Hawaii? One does not. 


It was definitely a refreshing & tasty reason to get out of the car!

Aloha!

A Virgin Thirsty Thursday

So without further ado, I present to you: Thirsty Thursday!

Remember last week when I said that you couldn’t go to Hawaii and not have a Mai Tai (or Man Tai, if you’re autocorrect!)?  Well, I’d also like to say that you cannot–under ANY circumstances–go to Hawaii and not have pineapple.

Unless you’re allergic.

Even if you think you hate pineapple, eating them in Hawaii just might change your mind…or your life.

Pineapple in Hawaii is like nothing you’ve ever tasted before.  Even the sweetest, best tasting pineapple you’ve ever had stateside pales in comparison.  In fact, if pineapple is your favorite fruit, you definitely want to make a trip (or yearly trip) to Hawaii.

I’m pretty sure we had fresh pineapple juice nearly every morning we ate out for breakfast.  I’m not sure you “squeeze” a pineapple, but whatever they did, it was pretty damn delicious!


This one is from Island Java Lava (home of amazing pancakes and deeeeeeelicious coffee!) and the hardest part was trying to make it last through breakfast because really, I just wanted to do this:

Aloha!

Margarita Monday: Hawaiian Style!

I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!?  Btw, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan or send me a message on FB!

I know, I know…it’s been awhile since I’ve posted for Margarita Monday and honestly, I didn’t think I’d have a margarita post whilst posting about Hawaii.  But in looking through all the pictures, I realized that we did have margaritas while we were there.  And by “we,” I mean Christi and Tracy–but I had a tasty sip, or perhaps two…or maybe four.  I mean how could you not when pineapple margaritas are on the menu?!?

These are from the Goofy Cafe & Dine in Honolulu, where we stopped to indulge in a bit of poke, bibimbap, and corn penne before we departed for the Big Island.  Goofy doesn’t have an extensive menu, but everything was fresh, delicious, and locally sourced!

Aloha!

My Cup Runneth Over for Thirsty Thursday

Of course, we all had some amazing drinks while in Hawaii, however, I realized that I have already spoken about a number of them already–so I thought I would repost them for you again on this Thirsty Thursday.

Hipahipa!

Thirsty Thursday #17

In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of a much tastier kind. So without further ado, I present to you Thirsty Thursday, all the way from Hawaii (for some strange reason I have a lot of pictures from Hawaii that qualify for Thirsty Thursdays…)!!

One of the great things about drinking well with others is getting to taste different things.  This is providing “others” are willing to share with you…or you are really good at sneaking sips when they are too distracted to notice you partaking in their beverages.

This is a Whiskey Wipeout, which is what Tracy ordered at Duke’s while I ordered last week’s Thirsty Thursday pic: Coconut Mojito.

If you like all things spicy, this is a drink you should definitely get when you find yourself walking along Waikiki in need of a tasty beverage.  Find Duke‘s Barefoot Bar, rinse the sand off your feet and ask for a beachside table.   It has Jim Beam, Grand Marnier, pineapple chipotle syrup, muddled pineapple, and fresh pineapple and jalapeños as a garnish.  How can you go wrong with anything that has a pineapple jalapeño garnish?!?!?
