If you thought you knew what a Tiki drink tastes like, then forget it immediately and get over to Hatch at the Union Market in Tustin. Mix master Trevor MacMoto @liquiddigestife, has put innovation, creativity and heart (not cow heart) into their incredible menu of craft cocktails with a fresh palate of pleasing twists.

We sat dowIMG_5111n with Trevor to get up close and personal to see what really makes him tick… What really blew us away the most about Trevor and his team is the level of care and interest they take when it comes to providing a truly euphoric experience that will keep you coming back for more. They are always up for the challenge to create a new cocktail just for you. Tell Trevor what you like and usually drink, and he will whip up something faster than you can say Hopetown Bahamas. He is a magical libations mind reader. We have never felt so understood and cared for- now if only Tinder could convert these skills into their software.
