Friday Photo — Nikka Whisky Tasting at the Manifest

Last week, The Manifest held one of their Tasting Session seminars with bar manager Justin Park. This one focused on whiskies from the Japanese distillery Nikka. I happened to see a posting on Instagram (if you want to find out about future tasting sessions, you should definitely be following them)... Read More

USBG Hawaii “Punch for Pooches” Fundraiser Event

This past weekend, the Hawaii Chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild held a fundraiser for the Hawaiian Humane Society: Punch for Pooches. Brilliant! Shake and I love punch and are very sad that it’s not more popular here. Fix that, people. I mean, how can you resist something like... Read More

Packs a Pisco Punch

This spring, we were invited to a tasting of Campo de Encanto Pisco at The Manifest in Chinatown. Neither Shake nor I knew much about pisco—I’d only ever had it mixed into cocktails, and not very frequently—and we were intrigued about learning more. Honestly, before the tasting, I couldn’t have... Read More

Current Obsession: Diamond & Dutch Cocktail

The first entry in what will be our ongoing catalog of things—dishes, drinks, products—we’re obsessed over. The Diamond & Dutch Cocktail at The Manifest in Chinatown started out as one of the bar’s weekly specials. (They have a cool menu board to the left of the bar that features the... Read More

“We Ate It” Round-Up (January 2013)

So, I totally skipped over November and December’s round-ups…but you’ll forgive me, I hope. Of course, the first thing (literally) consumed this year was a bowl of ozoni at my parents’ house. Ozoni is the traditional Japanese New Year’s mochi soup. Every family has their own recipe. Our family recipe... Read More
