October 1st is traditionally known as National Sake Day in Japan and marks the official start of the sake brewing season. Our Lanai ‘ohana decided to create a specialty cocktail to honor this renowned Japanese beverage and here is the recipe!
2 small slices muddled watermelon
1 oz vanilla vodka
.5 oz St. Germaine
.5 oz lime juice
.5 oz simple syrup
Fill with approximately 2 oz of sake (we used Hana Awaka Sparkling Flower Sake)
Put flour in roasting bags as instructed on roasting bag box. Place roast in roasting bag into a baking dish. Add carrots, celery and onions all around roast. Then add potatoes on top of other vegitable. In a sperate bowl, combine dry soup mix and Salty Wahine Hawaiian Rub. Sprinke all over top of potatoes and roast., saving just a little on the side. Pour beef broth over roast, then sprinke the remaining Hawaiian Rub mixture over roast and potatos. Seal bag and poke 3 or 4 slits in bags with a knife. Bake at 350 for 2 hours.
Note: we also love to use turnips if we find them at the market. All root vegitable are wonderful in this dish.
Auntie Phoebe (sister to owner Howard Warner) is the most creative cook and never uses a recipe as is. She always tweaks and bends it to fit the occasion. So the recipe she gave our us years ago originally called for bourbon but in natural Phoebe fashion, she has decided, and brilliantly so, when on Kauai to switch out rum for bourbon to make it more tropical and south-pacific tasting. And what better rum than Koloa Rum distilled right on Kauai and available at Living Foods.
Auntie Phoebe’s Marinade
½ cup Dijon-style mustard
¼ cup plus 2 T bourbon, or rum, or tequila, or whatever!
¼ cup soy sauce
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup minced scallions
Mix all of the above in a bowl, pour over meat and marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight in fridge. We have a fabulous butcher section that carries the finest and freshest cuts of meat that work perfect with this marinade!
