The story of the Fredrico
In brief, Mauna Kea homeowner Fred and friend Rick were thinking of a drink they could call their own while relaxing at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s Hau Tree restaurant bar, known as the Gazebo Bar at the time. One wanted a drink with rum and the other wanted one with bourbon.
To keep them both happy, the bartender combined the two spirits with Mauna Kea’s blended concoction of fruit juices. Thus, the Fredrico was born.
