Many of us love Hawaii and a very special place on the islands is the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island. This Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 10-4, Port O'Call, along with the rest of the merchants on Mission Street, will be celebrating Summer with refreshments, libations and a sidewalk sale. Stop by Port O'Call - 2650 Mission Street, Suite 105, San Marino for a taste of the legendary cocktail that is pure Summer and Hawaii. Lemonade will be served for our younger guests. Happy Summer - Sip and Sale - Aloha!

This drink was the invention of two frequent hotel guests by the names of Fred and Rico. The two friends spent many hours of each day at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s Gazebo Bar, watching the waves roll in and the glorious sunsets over Kaunaoa Bay. They became quite the connoisseurs of exotic drinks and would have Jim the bartender prepare all sorts of concoctions for their sampling. After much tasting and many debates, the Fredrico was born.

How To Made 'The Fredrico' Cocktail

  • 1-¼ oz. Bacardi light rum
  • 1-¼ oz. Jack Daniels
  • 2-3 oz. each of the following: pineapple, passion fruit, guava and orange juices
  • Splash of grenadine

Blend all ingredients with ice. Garnish with a cherry, pineapple wedge and fresh orchid. Enjoy!

We recommend serving this iconic cocktail in our Bacarrat Tumblers.
