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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
