Local bartender creates athletically-themed drinks

WAKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A local hotel created a drink menu in honor of the iconic Tour de France bike race. These drinks are part of a summer cocktail menu created by Halekulani bartender Tim Rita. The menu is called "Off to the Races" and features athletically-themed drinks with names like "Winner's Cup" and "Thyme to Roll." The drinks will be offered through the end of the month.

"We wanted to celebrate the Tinman and also the Tour de France. Tinman is very popular in Hawaii and Tour de France...everybody knows Tour de France," said Rita.

Rita also created three drinks specifically inspired by the Tinman Triathlon. That race takes place here on Oahu on July 31st. His next creations will be a nod to Oktoberfest!
