Hawaiian Holiday Entertaining

Tis the Season for entertaining and we have wonderful Hawaiian Holiday additions that can bring a Taste of Aloha to your Holiday entertaining! 

We begin with one of our favorite appetizers that comes with very little preparation.

Hawaiian Pepper Jelly on Cream Cheese

This appetizer uses our Dip into Paradise Hawaiian Pepper Jelly which is sweet and spicy consisting of Hawaiian peppers, onions, parsley, & honey with a flavor that is not too hot and not too mild. Pour it over cream cheese and serve with your favorite crackers. How easy is that? This delicious appetizer is sure to please and is so easy that it makes a perfect addition to your busy holiday season! 


What is the holiday season with a little Hawaiian cheer? 

Kona Coffee Espresso Martini

We love this simple cocktail that we brought a twist of the islands to. This cocktail uses the delicious Da Kine Kona Coffee Syrup , this syrup is infused with Kona Coffee and is also gluten free! 


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake with ice and fine strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with three coffee beans. 

Super delicious Hawaiian Cocktail... Cheers!
