Hawaiian Punch (West 94th Street Pub, Durham)—Cocktail Review

Hawaiian Punch
West 94th Street Pub
Woodcroft, Durham

This drink, with its bloody trail of maraschino juice, looks like it’d be great for a Halloween party. It’s made with vodka, Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice, and more than a splash of blue curacao.

It’s a great, simple tropical punch, perfect for sipping on a porch or by a pool on a hot day, or in my case, on a day in the sixties that seemed hot in comparison to our wretched winter weather. Very sweet, but this sort of drink should be. There was a hint of orange from the curacao that gave it depth but I think lime would have added a lot more.  If I discount it watering down too quickly, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Where is this place? i’ve never heard of it?
    The drink looks yummy, although I think I’ll wait for warmer weather!

    It’s in the Woodcroft Shopping Center on Hope Valley Road. There’s a Food Lion, Bandidos, and a Japanese restaurant. The sign for West 94th Street Pub just reads PUB up top. They’ve got a sheltered porch out front. It’s very cozy and a neighborhood crowd.
