Mocktail Anyone?

Japanese pupu
Create healthy, non-alcoholic mocktails for Halloween, Thanksgiving, special events or just to try something a little different. Trish will demonstrate how to create a few faux cocktail recipes. Learn to develop your own special drink and control the quality and quantity of your ingredients (organic or not, low sugar, low salt, allergens, etc.). Pair your mocktail with some savory or sweet tapas, pupu or small bites. Join Chef Steve, as he demonstrates holiday recipes made with local produce and products.

Stephen Maeshiro, Uala Leaf Cafe chef, started his journey in the culinary industry at McDonald’s in Waikiki. He has worked at some of Honolulu’s notable Japanese restaurants, specializing in traditional Japanese dishes. He brings his culinary skills and knowledge of kaiseki dining and "make sushi" (roll sushi) to today’s session pairing small plates with mocktails.
woman instructor
Patricia "Trish" Brubaker,  started making faux cocktails over a year ago as part of her workplace's weekly team-building activity. It was a creative challenge to come up with something fresh, tasty and (hopefully) healthy each week.  She  views each mocktail as an experiment in flavor, fun and fantasy.
