LIQUID KITCHEN Mixologists share their art of crafting cocktails

MIX MASTERS From top: Billy McKee and a popular classic cocktail, the Blue Hawai‘i, at The Pint & Cork; Simone Cabaud, bartender at Tommy Bahama, and her creations (from left), the Pineapple Yazu Mojito, the Key Lime Martini and the Hibiscus Lime Cooler. Opposite page: A Maui Mai Tai at Cheeseburger Grille & Tap Room.

A decade ago, the term “mixologist”

re-emerged due to a cocktail renaissance that harkened back to a gilded age when attention and care to crafting a drink set a “mixologist of tipulars”—as described in a 1960 article that appeared in Raftsman’s Journal from Clearfield, Pennsylvania— apart from the average bartender. While the trend is still relatively new, the term is not. Beginning in the

1880s, the title most frequently referred to bartenders at tony establishments. While some in the industry consider mixology to be pretentious and sterile, others deem it a higher calling behind the bar. Muddling fresh mint and pineapple, Simone Cabaud smiles and says, “You’re supposed to have fun while you’re drinking.” For the past three years the Tommy Bahama mixologist has put on a show behind T he Sho p s at Wa il ea

the bar where tippling voyeurs watch her carefully as she steadily prepares their cocktails. “Bartenders are now viewed as chefs,” Cabaud asserts as she works her magic with a mojito. “The ingredients are fresh and fun, and while it may take a little longer to prepare a cocktail, it’s worth it.” Fellow mixologist Patrick Woods thinks it’s exciting to be able to use fresh island ingredients to develop more nuanced flavors that complement each other. “We make a Moscow Mule, but our version includes muddled jalapeño, pineapple and ginger for an island touch,” he says. “It’s fun to watch people expand their palates and introduce them to new cocktails.” Back in the 1970s and ’80s, Michael Rose was already developing cocktail recipes that were being published in a major magazine. Today, the general manager and sommelier for Longhi’s has created 15 to 20 specialized cocktails to complement the restaurant’s award-winning wine program. “Every cocktail is made from scratch,” Rose says. “Our cocktail program mirrors our food program, which incorporates the best ingredients. And we let the essence of the ingredients naturally stand out.” “Mai Tais” was once part of the original name of Cheeseburger Grille & Tap Room, fittingly so since the restaurant served—and still does—between 60 and 80 mai tais per day. And while the rum-and-Curaçaobased cocktail remains popular among guests, Kris Galon says they’ve added more craft cocktails as well as their own line of craft beer. “The term ‘mixologist’ came later in my career,” says Galon, a former bartender and now Cheeseburger Grille & Tap Room’s general manager. “Mixology is truly an art form with a creative flair for presentation and flavors. Mixologists are so passionate and their innovations are amazing.” In developing The Pint & Cork’s cocktail menu, owner-operator Chris Lowney turned to Youngs Market Co.’s Joey Gottesman, considered by many as Hawai‘i’s leading mixologist. Lowney says he knew what he wanted: bourbon- and whiskey-forward cocktails that are reminiscent of the Prohibition era. “I call it ‘Speak Easier,’” Lowney quips. “We want cocktails that are easier to make and I think we have a good mix of everything.”

One of the more interesting concoctions is the “Deconstructed Lava Flow,” which isn’t frozen, according to bartender Billy McKee. “There’s a market niche for craft cocktails,” he says. “Our version of a lava flow is just one example. We also do a mai tai but we add absinthe to the mix.” While better known for its premium wine list, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is developing a cocktail program, which will soon be revealed. Expect Bulleit Bourbon to be part of the mix. “We just released our new craft cocktails, which I’m excited about,” says restaurant manager Randy Spencer. “It seems like everyone wants a craft cocktail these days. So I think these drinks are a nice complement to our wine list and our specialty martinis.”

Giving Back The Shops at Wailea builds platforms for Maui philanthropy

The health of our communities reflects the wealth of our hearts. As individuals, we are defined by how we give back to the collective, our neighbors in need. Indeed no man is an island—even on an island like Maui. This is a philosophy that The Shops at Wailea shares. With a passion for local programs that are truly making a difference, The Shops is giving back in a big way by partnering with 12 Maui-based nonprofits—one for each month of the year—using its special events as an avenue for philanthropy. So each time you attend an ARTwalk or the Concerts at The Shops series (among other events), you’re aiding a good cause. Your support starts from the moment you park your car, where a whopping 60 percent of your special events parking fee goes directly to that month’s featured organization. During the events, the highlighted nonprofit is given a special table space to share their message. There, you can learn more about how their mission is changing lives on Maui—and the ripple effect it has across oceans and around the world. “We really wanted to ensure that the proceeds stay on Maui,” says Brian Yano, The Shops’ general 30

RISK AND REWARD

September’s featured nonprofit is Maui Hui Malama, which since 1973 has been transforming the lives of at-risk youth. To date, more than 26,000 Maui County kids have been helped onto the path of self-reliance. Many of Hui Malama’s students have experienced difficulty because of abusive households or homelessness. Referrals to the organization often follow family court or juvenile justice proceedings. Hui Malama helps these students either return to the public school system or obtain a GED diploma—plus gain employment and life-skills training. Mälama, in Hawaiian, means “to care for,” and Hui Malama has developed bold programs that tend to the holistic health of each student and his or her family. Comprehensive “Individual Development Plans” are made to address each participant’s unique needs and experiences. By bolstering social, emotional, intellectual and physical well-being, Maui Hui Malama turns at-risk youth into responsible citizens and effective community contributors. sisterhood of support

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that month’s theme is all about strong wahine (women). Fittingly, the month’s featured nonprofit 32

is Women Helping Women (WHW). Since 1977, WHW has been a powerful grassroots organization that assists victims of domestic violence. With its shelter and transitional housing programs, children’s programs and community outreach, WHW focuses on direct intervention, prevention and education. Every year, WHW helps more than 600 individuals with its life-saving services. This adds up annually to over 9,300 “bed days” of shelter support, over 830 responses to crisis calls, and more than 7,300 informational calls to their help hotline. A FRIEND INDEED

In November, the “Life Is Sweet” dessert tasting benefits Best Buddies, a nonprofit that uplifts those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (including but not limited to Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury) with a volunteer initiative that “creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development.” One of Best Buddies’ three key pillars is its friendship program, where according to its mission, volunteers offer ongoing social mentoring “while improving the quality and level of inclusion for a population that is often isolated and excluded… [helping] them improve self-advocacy and communication skills and feel valued by society.” JOIN US

Hawaiian music portrays the sensuality of a sunset unlike any other sound. It stirs the psyche to tropical reverie. One ‘ukulele strum will transport your mind’s eye to coconut palms in the balmy breeze; a single falsetto trill will put the taste of lu‘au on your tongue. “Music can pierce the heart directly; it needs no meditation,” wrote the late great musicologist Dr. Oliver Sacks. “One does not have to know anything about [the Greek myth of] Dido and Aeneas to be moved by her lament for him; anyone who has ever lost someone knows what Dido is expressing.” In this way, Hawaiian music also plucks the heartstrings of humanity. Though its language might as well be Martian to foreign ears, Hawaiians’ deep— and often secretive—poetic undercurrents can be felt. Let’s explore the many layers of Hawaiian music’s sophisticated lyricism. 36

The sho ps at Wa ilea

MOTHER NATURE, MOTHER TONGUE Seasoned travelers know a special truth: bona fide Hawaiian bliss isn’t under the umbrella in your drink, nor in a viral-worthy selfie. (Alas, even the best buzzes fade.) Rather, the real richness of Hawai‘i is found in full-sensory immersion into the immutable beauty of this land, sea and sky. Hawaiians have called this archipelago home since the time of Christ (maybe longer), and hold an indelible love for the ‘äina (land) that they are born of, fed from, and return to in death—their bodies again becoming the earth that nourishes their kin to come. “Nature is where it all begins for the Hawaiians,” writes MJ Harden, in her tome “Voices of Wisdom.” “Their sense of place was so keen that

every valley had a name, as did every waterfall, stream, mountain, gulch and beach.” There are literally thousands of Hawaiian words that describe particular sands, sea-sprays, mists, and afterglows from solar to magmatic. Every earthly delight has its place in the indigenous dictionary. For two millennia, this linguistic arsenal has thrived. And with it, the native people of these islands have exalted their homeland—and the human condition—with elaborate poetry, song and dance. BUILT COMPLEX Poetry is a crux of Hawaiian pride—and music is its most lively platform. Songwriting with kaona (hidden meaning) is the hallmark of the greats. To the Hawaiian composer, songs are sumptuous caches of words regarded as jewels, faceted to reflect many meanings. It’s a writer’s unique challenge to 38

The s ho p s at Wa ilea

carefully haku (weave) their lyrics so that several stories align in a single song. “The cleverness of the composer was demonstrated by the way he took advantage of the language,” writes kumu hula Kaha‘i Topolinski, in a 1976 article for the groundbreaking publication “Ha‘ilono Mele,” published by the Hawaiian Music Foundation. “Series of word paintings describing the beauties of nature may be used in such profusion that they tend to bewilder [the] unaccustomed,” he says. This abundant earth-amour has its literal purpose, but it also artfully houses hidden human stories. “A special ingredient of Hawaiian chants is the all-important kaona, or hidden meaning, in the choice of words,” says Topolinski. “The most refined mele [song] has at least two meanings, achieving the second one by pun, allegory, word play or similar devices.”

maui music maker Born on Maui, Napua Greig is an award-winning recording star and kumu hula (master hula teacher). She frequently performs at The Shops at Wailea.

A song that on its surface lauds gentle raindrops on a flower, or the pounding surf, may also have rather racy connotations. “The human emotions [of] love and sex have occupied the constant attention of poets throughout the ages,” says Topolinski. “It is to the Hawaiian’s credit that he treats this universal theme in such beautiful and figurative language.” Outer layers can be understood by those “learned in the art of reading these secret or double meanings,” 40

The s ho p s at Wa ilea

SECRET AGENTS Today’s superstars of Hawaiian music—like Keali‘i Reichel, Näpua Greig, Kamaka Kukona and Paula Fuga (featured artists of The Concerts at The Shops series, see Events on page 8 for more)—are among the modern torchbearers of this complex lyrical style. Some of the most revered names in modern Hawaiian music, their mantels are mountains of shiny awards and their passports have more stamps than a post office. But their job is more than entertainment. Tasked with holding hands between two worlds, they are both the new hit-makers and the ancient culture-keepers. They help keep strong the songs of yore and write the words that generations will remember hence. Every month, in The Concerts at The Shops series, the crème de la crème of Hawaiian music takes the stage—often augmented by the finest hula dancers on the planet. As is the case with Reichel, Kukona and Greig, their illustrious recording careers are rooted in the fact that they are foremost kumu hula (master hula teachers). So the next time you hear Hawaiian music—and it moves your spirit, despite its exotic tongue—know that it’s for more than mellifluous reasons. Its poetry has been sumptuously crafted to extol the earth and tell tales of the human heart—and may even be hiding a secret story, between its lyrical lines.

but songwriters also cunningly conscribe certain secrets to their innermost circles. While most of the audience is enjoying one or a few perspectives of a song, there are some listeners who simultaneously hear meaning meant only for them. The dexterous wordplay of composers goes even further, “for with its paucity of sounds, the same phonetic combinations might carry a number of meanings,” says Topolinski, “leaving much to be supplied by the imagination, and the inferences thus drawn depend considerably on the predisposition of the auditor.”
