Veteran bartender Billy Gienger joined Huggo’s in 2011 and is widely recognized as one of the most talented mixologists in the islands. We’ve let him run free with his top-shelf, “wild card” creations he and his bartender colleagues are mixing up nightly. The featured, high-octane concoction differs each evening, so roll the dice and take your chances on a delicious surprise.
Billy is happy to share the secret ingredients and the inspiration for the cocktail – just ask!
He took time earlier this week to preview two featured drinks –The Tusk and The Kona Club.
The Tusk is a refreshing blend of Plymouth Gin, Lemongrass, Basil Oil, Korean Chili Oil, Coconut Milk and Lime, while the Kona Club – the inspiration of fellow bartender Lawrence LaBounty – features the Italian herbal liquor, Fernet, plus a Whole Egg, Angostura Bitters, Drambuie, Pineapple Juice and Fresh Lime.
Billy promises many more innovative cocktails to come – cheers!
