I’ll ride the wave where it takes me.
Pip from Raise Your Spirits (2020):
"Sometimes a drink is more of a moment than a flavor. Three weeks into quarantine I thought back to that trip to Mexico, motivated to share my experiences with our class and create a cocktail that could tell a story inspired by my fellow travelers. I remembered the rooftop and the alluring colors of the drinks that seduced us as we admired the sky’s reflection off the sea.
Makai is a Hawaiian term that means, toward the ocean . Whether it’s coming home or visiting my friends out west, for me, life is good toward the ocean. This drink is dedicated to that moment, that group of people, and how fiercely I want us all to get back there."
