The Honolulu Cocktail was one of the signature cocktails in 1930's Hollywood at the Brown Derby and it remains one of the best tropical gin cocktails.

The menagerie of fruits in the drink likely led to the name and create a taste and feel of the islands, even if you're in Manhattan. It is a nicely designed drink and would be a great classic choice for those who like the fruitier drinks like those adorning many modern Martini menus.
