Cocktail Of The Month: The Divanzo

The Divanzo

It’s been a privilege to submit these cocktail quips and recipes since NATIVE’s first issue. Over the years we’ve shot and brought you more than 70 of the recipes we’ve offered the masses here at No. 308. Next month, I’m happy to be turning over this role to our new beverage director and dear friend, Sean Glenn. I felt it fitting to leave you with the first drink we served here, The Divanzo. Be good to each other out there. I love you and hope you’ve enjoyed our time together. Mahalo, it’s Daiquiri time!
