The HAI TAI

The HAI TAI comes from our love of Hawaii and the tropics. Sipping a HAI TAI poolside with friends in the summer immediately transports us back to the islands. The trick to keeping it fruity and less sweet is to use unsweetened Pineapple Juice. There is plenty of sweetness from the syrup and grenadine. – Patty
