When we created our new Lobby Lounge cocktails, one of our primary inspirations was color, in the menu and in the drinks themselves. We distilled the concept of “tiki” down to the cocktail’s seven traditional tropical ingredients—rum, coconut, pineapple, mango, almond, citrus, and mint—like the seven pigments in a rainbow. The result is a fresh, balanced cocktail. —Ben Yabrow, resort beverage manager
