Smooth & Tropical

Waterstreet Café & Bar • Olympia, Wa

Former Waterstreet bar manager Justin Hosford says he made this drink for two reasons. "One, I always try to have a drink that people find slightly strange on my cocktail menu. If anything, it creates conversation. Two, I don't keep a blender behind my bar, so I wanted to create a drink with a naturally smooth texture."
