For the second summer in a row we have to give credit where it is due, with another fabulous seasonal menu for summer at Pacific Catch. Last year it was tiki and this year it is “Endless Summer” but in both cases the cocktail options are pretty good.
Regular readers know that Island Mai Tais are not exactly my thing, but the Pacific Catch Lilikoi Mai Tai is fabulous. I truly loved it and ordered a second that was just as good. The cocktail features Flor de Cana Silver, Wray & Nephew Overproof, passionfruit, “house mai tai mix,” and a Lahaina dark rum float. This certainly leaned more to the sweet side rather than the tart side, but it wasn’t overpowering with fruit like most Island Mai Tais are. I liked the flavor of the dark rum float, too. This Mai Tai is very likely going to end up on my top 10 list. Seriously.
And big extra credit to the Pacific Catch team who came up with the fabulous Mai Tai glass design, inspired by the classic Trader Vic’s tapa glass design. Apparently these aren’t for sale, but I’d love to have one.
We really enjoyed our meal, and the service from Marissa at the Dublin location was outstanding. Mrs. Mai Tai thought the Strawberry Mule was just okay, but found the Carmelized Pina Colada to be quite good (I thought so too). We will return before summer is over.
