Every once and awhile a specialty cocktail catches the attention of guests. The cocktail that caught my attention is the Drunken Mule from Roy’s, a restaurant of European techniques and Pacific Rim cuisine. The first Roy’s opened in Honolulu, Hawaii, which is where inspiration for the Drunken Mule came from. The traditional Moscow Mule is a favorite alcoholic beverage for many over the age of 21 and typically includes a high-quality vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a lime. Roy’s Drunken Mule is made up of the same basic ingredients with a couple twists: a blend of Pau Maui Vodka with muddled Hawaiian martini pineapples, orgeat syrup and ginger beer, served in a classic copper mug. Garnished with a lime and pineapple, this cocktail is sure to transport anyone straight to the islands.
The Drunken Mule pairs well with Roy’s new limited-time (ends in April) winter prix fixe menu at only $36.95, which features the rich flavors of winter’s harvest including seasonal produce like clementine oranges, parsnip, beets, fennel and more. To start, enjoy Crunchy Filet Mignon Dumplings or a Clementine Baby Beet Salad. As an entrée, choose between a Grilled Pork Porterhouse with fennel and parsnip or Seared Salmon with fingerling potatoes and long beans. For dessert, indulge in Roy’s Signature Chocolate Soufflé.

Culinary genius Roy Yamaguchi began the fusion cuisine restaurant in 1988, and with its birth came an entirely new and unique approach to fine dining achieved by his blend of classic techniques with exciting Pacific flavors in high-quality seafood. Over twenty Roy’s locations are spread throughout six U.S. states, and each location has their own local menus prepared by local chefs who infuse their own originality at the same time keeping Roy’s vision blooming. Seasonal favorites and new cooking concepts keep the menu changing regularly, however, a core menu is also available year-round. Along with their seasonal menus, Roy’s offers special menus on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and on more special occasions.
