The Stash Cocktail at Friendly Waves on Kauai – A Cocktail Lovers Dream Come True!
During my recent visits to the enchanting island of Kauai I enjoyed a number of Magnificent Meals and Stellar Cocktails. Friendly Waves in Old Koloa Town has both and they are in my “top five” for places I ate in Kauai.
During my multiple visits to Friendly Waves I had three very good cocktails – the Small Island Sour, the High Tide Tonic, and the Stash. I cover the first two in my This is Culinary Treasure article titled Friendly Waves on Kauai – One Magnificent Dish After Another!
The Stash is so good that it deserves it’s own stand alone article.
The Stash is Craft Cocktail Treasure
The stash is comprised of Ford’s Gin, Amaro Lucano, and Rosa Regale Sparkling Red and it is soooo good! The combination of those three ingredients results in a cocktail that is very much greater than the sum of its parts.
If you love cocktails, you will deeply appreciate the alchemy this cocktail exemplifies. The amaro is pronounced but not at all overbearing, the gin plays very well with the amaro, and the sparkling red brilliantly brings it all together.
Ford’s Gin, Amaro Lucano, and Rosa Regale Sparkling Red
According to their website Ford’s Gin is a London dry style made with 9 botanicals; juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, grapefruit peel, angelica, cassia, jasmine and Orris and it is distilled in London at Thames Distillers.
According to their website Amaro Lucano is comprised of more than 30 herbs and was created in 1894. For those who don’t know amaro is an Italian herbal liqueur and there are dozens of different amaros available with many different flavor profiles.
According to their website Rosa Regale Sparkling Red has been around since the time of Cleopatra and has aromas of fresh crushed strawberries and a hint of rose petals.
Again, I loved the Stash cocktail and I highly encourage you to get yourself to Friendly Waves on Kauai and have one for yourself.
