Michael Misaka

When are you punching the clock at Pulehu Restaurant at the Westin Kaanapali Resort?

Thursday to Monday.

Why sling booze?

I have a passion for mixology.

Libation Likes

St Germaine liqueur. It’s new and hot and our guests love it. Also big boy cabs from Napa valley and Maui Brewing Company’s Mana Wheat.

Astro Sign

Sagittarius, the most philosophical of all the signs, but I don’t believe in any of that.

Moonshine Mixture

Caprese Martini: tomato basil-infused martini garnished with a grape tomato and a fresh mozzarella ball.

Personal Poison

Scotch from the lowlands.

Sweet soused perks

You’re like a chef but with ingredients that put people in a good mood

Bottle Buzz Kills

Learning the fine line between crafting amazing cocktails and speed/efficiency.

Tipsy Tips

“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink, when they wake up in the morning that’s the best they are going to feel all day.”  – Dean Martin
