Here’s a fun one.

Royal Hawaiian’s resident Mixologist (and local favorite) Sean Melia has come up with a whole new raft of holiday and seasonal cocktails (hey, Hawaii dreams of a white Christmas, too).

What better way to celebrate than to offer a uniquely crafted cocktail of the day, priced at $12, for “The 12 Days of Christmas?” (The restaurant is closed on Thanksgiving Day and Mondays, but it otherwise follows a glorious 12-day schedule.

Melia kicks off “12 Days of Christmas Cocktails” on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, with the holiday drink, “Reindeer Express.” (This is the ONLY drink he’s not giving me any ingredient hints on.) In honor of “The First Day of Christmas Cocktails” theme, the restaurant opens early at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday as well.

Print this and pin it next to your nativity calendar …

“On the 1st day of Christmas, my RoHi had for me … a cocktail that gives me great glee.”

To kick off the holiday season, Royal Hawaiian Fire Grill has announced a 12 Days Of Christmas Cocktails event that features its best-selling and new-to-the-menu cocktails between Nov. 26th and Dec. 11th.

The 12 Days of Christmas begins on Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, Nov. 27th, with doors opening a special hour early at 4:00 p.m. to celebrate Mixologist Sean Melia’s holiday cocktail, The Reindeer Express. It’s a perfect holiday cocktail welcome to all of you who are loaded up with visiting friends and relatives and (quite possibly) displaced from your pre-Thanksgiving kitchens. Get out of the kitchen and into the welcoming arms of our tiki totems as we all celebrate the start of the holiday season.
