Ka’anapali Fresh Festival Birthplace of the Dragonberry Bomb Cocktail

The third annual Ka’anapali Fresh  Festival  on Maui’s Western coast is coming up August 29-31, 2014 on the beach and different hotel venues in  this  famed resort area.  Join the Ka’anapali Resort Association for  three days and nights of locally-sourced food, a celebration of farms and fishermen, local products, local chefs and Hawaiian culture and music. And yes, wine and signature cocktails too. Stay in one of Ka’anapali’s fine hotels and condos, you may book a room  and purchase tickets online for the festival events.

Why not celebrate  right now with this Dragonberry Bomb?

There will be gala dinners and events featuring Ka’anapali’s best chefs, Hawaiian musicians and hula, local farmers and fishermen and a cultural event  with the arrival of the new double -hulled sailing canoe at the beach for  the sunset opening of the three day event.  Mixology class happens again this year  and we are sharing  with you Freddie Sconfienza’s   Dragonberry Bomb an award-winning  concoction that brought him the tittle of Starwood Hotel  & Resort’s Star Mixologist.
