Mai Tai

Mai Tai cocktail with rum and orange curaçao

The Mai Tai – like countless other “tiki” drinks – was the brainchild of restauranteur Victor Bergeron, better known as “Trader Vic.” His original recipe called for a seventeen-year-old golden Jamaican rum, but you can really use just about any kind of rum in this. When we make it, we use equal parts of dark rum and a light or spiced rum.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a bouquet of mint; slap it first to release the oils, and then place it right at the edge of the glass where the drinker can get a good whiff while they sip.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
