Honolulu Hotel Offers 'SuperFoods'-Inspired Cocktails

Who thought enjoying a cocktail could be healthy? This summer, Beachhouse at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, is introducing a selection of SuperFoods-inspired Mojito cocktails filled with powerful antioxidants. Created exclusively for Westin Hotels by Francesco Lafranconi (director of mixology for Southern Wine & Spirits of America, Inc.), each handcrafted cocktail is made with key SuperFoods ingredients including blueberries, ginger, green tea and honey that reputedly help protect the body against cancer and other diseases. (We make no guarantees about the health benefits of these drinks, of course, but they certainly sound delicious!)
 
The drink selections include a classic Cuban Mojito made with fresh mint, rum, and fresh lime alongside additional SuperFoods-inspired Mojito creations such as the Blueberry Mojito, Pineapple and Ginger Mojito, Spicy Apple Mojito, Green Tea and Honey Mojito, Strawberry Kiwi Mojito, and a Brazilian Cure Mojito made with Brazilian rum and VeeV Açai Spirit, a powerful superfood liquor.
 
Westin worked with Lafranconi to create cocktails using healthy pairings of SuperFoods ingredients. For example, when mixed with ginger, pineapple can help soothe an upset stomach or finish off a big meal and cinnamon and fruits such as apples work together to control blood sugar.
