Across the nation about one in three traffic fatalities is attributed to an impaired or drunk driver.  Hawaii is no exception to this statistic with nearly half of all traffic deaths caused by drivers under the influence.

To help support our statewide initiative of Driving Aloha we partnered with the Hawaii Department of Transportation and the Hawaii US Bartenders’ Guild to create a book of non-alcoholic drink recipes dubbed “Mocktails”.

These Mocktail recipes below have been hand crafted by some of Hawaii’s top mixologists so we hope that you will enjoy each one at your next celebration with family and friends.  With the holiday season upon us, make it your responsibility to Drive Aloha by driving sober or finding a designated driver.
