“Sheraton Maui has a rich history of legends and myths,” says Director of Food and Beverage Brandon Maeda. “This cocktail embodies these legends in its use of native ingredients. Made from the root of the East Maui ti plant, ‘Okolehao is one of Hawaii’s oldest liqueurs. Once labeled as ‘Hawaiian moonshine,’ it was banned for a number of years.”
