Cheers to Maui

Where Maui - - Where Now -

Be­fore the term “liq­uid diet” or “juic­ing” be­came a pop­u­lar trend, Maui was al­ready serv­ing up its finest fla­vors over ice, in de­com­pos­able prod­ucts or in lovely recyclable glass­ware. Luck­ily, re­gard­less if you’re on a strict liq­uid diet or not, with the list of places and tastes that Maui has to of­fer, you’ll gladly sip ev­ery meal through a straw. From quaint cof­fee spots in Pā‘ia and kom­bucha on-tap in Haiku to grab-and-go juices on the way to Hāna and a re­lax­ing cock­tail by sun­set in Wailea, there’s a mix of op­tions to choose from for ev­ery thirsty in­di­vid­ual.

MORN­ING GLORY

Start your day in Maui with a nice breakfast and cup of Joe at Pā‘ia Bay Cof­fee. Its set­ting, within a lush trop­i­cal gar­den, will make you feel like you’re part of a “hid­den gem.” By day, it serves up an as­sort­ment of cof­fee, from a House Blend to a Dirty Chai Latte; and when the sun sets, drinks are paired with tapas for a lovely date night out. 115 Hāna Hwy., 808.579.3111, pa­iabay­cof­fee.com

HELLO HĀNA

Be­fore you drive the swirly and wind­ing route of Hāna High­way, make a pit stop at Kū’au Store for a smoothie or one of its trop­i­cal-themed juices. Choose from the Mojo Mo­jito, the Beet­nik, Green Trees, Kuau Klenz or H-Poko. 701 Hāna Hwy., 808.579.8844, kuau­s­tore.com
