Mai Tai and Manta Rays

Combine two of Hawaii's pleasures--drink Guava Mai Tais at the Crystal Blue bar at the Sheraton. Grab a seat near the water and watch the sunset. Linger over another drink and you have a good chance of seeing the Manta Rays--they show up at sundown almost every night. I ordered the beef Kebab pupu with a teriyaki glaze. Served on a bed of Asian greens. It was a very good value for five succulent sticks of beef.
A Mai Tai and kebabs make a great dinner if you don't want to leave your seat.

The bartender shared the Mai Tai receipe. But somehow I know it tastes better overlooking the ocean.
