Hali‘imaile General Store
Hali‘imaile General Store is a charming, old-style plantation store in the middle of an Upcountry pineapple field that serves all fresh culinary cocktails with an award winning wine list and local beers. If I’m sitting at my bar, I’d be ordering the Tai Mai, our award winning Mai Tai and Hawaii’s state drink! It has all fresh ingredients, a balance of sweet and tart, local rums, almond, Kaffir, fresh limes and orange juice. If you like brown liquor, a fresh Tamarind Whiskey Sour could quite possibly beat the Tai Mai in freshness and flavor. All fresh culinary cocktails served here use seasonal fresh local fruits and herbs. Some recent favorites include fresh juiced lilikoi, mangos, Kula strawberries, Pommelo, tamarind, ginger, coconut, lemongrass and Kaffir. You name it, we can do anything!
If you are not sure what to order, I’m positive I can find your pleasure. Is it sweet? Sour? On the rocks or blended? For the local stuff, we carry all Maui Brewing Co. brews, Old Lahaina Rums distilled in Paia, Hali‘imaile distilled Pau Vodka made with 100 percent Maui Gold Pineapple and Sammy’s beach bar rum.
Try this for local flavor: lilikoi is in abundance now so drinking it in a martini is exquisite. Use Pau Vodka with fresh lilikoi and serve with a citrus zest sugared rim. It’s sweet, tart and smooth.”
Open for lunch M-F 11- 2:30, Dinner seven nights a week, 5:30-9pm.
