The story of the iconic Mystery Drink involves many famous people, including Johnny Carson, Bettie Page, Bunny Yeager, Kui Lee, and Mariano Licudine. The invention, evolution, and ingenious promotion of this legendary cocktail began during the spirituous times following the opening of the Mai-Kai and subsequent opening of the Molokai Bar. Rare videos and images, accompanied by firsthand accounts, will bring the fascinating tale of the Mystery Drink to life in this documentary-style presentation.
