Cock­tail Cul­ture

Where Maui - - Editor's Itinerary -

Shake it. Stir it. Swirl it. In re­cent years, the art of cre­at­ing cock­tails has gone be­yond the ubiq­ui­tous mai tai. To­day, pas­sion­ate mixol­o­gists have com­plex recipes, list­ing ingredients that were once re­served for the back of the house. Bars these days are now just as likely to be stocked with herbs and spices, mix­ing and match­ing fla­vor pro­files to con­coct the per­fect elixir. At Rel­ish at the Westin Maui Re­sort & Spa, Fred Scon­fienza strikes a bal­ance be­tween pre­sen­ta­tion and fla­vor (page 14). Mean­while, guests have ac­cess to shops, res­tau­rants and pow­dery beaches at Wailea (page 16). Speak­ing of beaches, we pro­vide our top picks (page 17). And when in Maui, dress like a lo­cal (page 18).
