If you’re looking for an excuse to order more cocktails on vacation, is here to save the day, both for you and for the world’s imperiled oceans. With luxury properties across Hawai’i, Asia Pacific and the Indian Ocean, Outrigger understands the value of the waters that surround its pristine properties and has been working to protect and preserve them with its OZONE (Outrigger’s Zone) program since 2014. Focused on oceans and coral reefs, the program seeks to educate, fundraise and take action to meet its goals with a variety of initiatives, but one of the most recent may also be the most fun.
Capitalizing on Pantone’s 2019 color of the year, Living Coral, Outrigger properties worldwide unveiled coral-colored cocktails with the proceeds from all sales of these vivid drinks benefitting OZONE. Look for drinks like the Coral Pink Sands Margarita at Outrigger Guam Beach Resort, with a Himalayan pink sea salt rim and red coral tuile garnish, or the Clean Wave from Waikiki Beachcomber, featuring tequila, chili pepper gin and muddled strawberry and pineapple with bitters. OHANA Waikiki serves an even fruitier open with its grapefruit, orange, lychee and grenadine-flavored tequila stunner, the Sakura Sea Samurai. Wherever you find an Outrigger property, you’ll find Living Coral cocktails as beautiful as the tropical paradise around you, and it’ll be that much easier to let yourself order “just one more,” knowing you’re contributing to a worthy cause just by enjoying your vacation.
