The Makena Beach & Golf Resort’s Liquid Chef series continues this Thursday, April 24 with “Jumpin’ Juniper: Everything Gin.”

In partnership with Young’s Market Company Hawaii and their Spirit Specialist/Mixologist Joey Gottesman, the event is being held on Makena Resort’s oceanfront lawn.

Organizers note that this is different from past Liquid Chef Events, as “Gottesman offers a chance to be enlightened with Gin’s history and creation. He then allows guests to discover the spirit’s unique botanicals and the opportunity to taste straight Gin from different regions of the world.”

After the tastings, plan to watch Gottesman create three classic cocktails for you to enjoy along with special appetizers prepared by the resort’s culinary team.

  • Dutch Courage – Bols Genever, stirred with Antica Carpano Sweet Vermouth and Quaffable Bitters, strained up with a fresh expressed orange swath.
