Mai Tai

The Mai Tai

  • The origins of the Mai Tai are somewhat controversial.  The drink was either invented by Trader Vic in 1944 (Click Here ) or as suggested in the book by Arnold Bitner, “Hawaii – Tropical Rum Drinks & Cuisine by Don the Beachcomber“,  the Mai Tai was invented by Don in 1933.    The recipes are quite different, which results in no standard recipe for the Mai Tai.  Many variations are now common.

A Modern Mai Tai
(standard recipe)

1 oz Gold Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
1 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Orgeat Syrup (If unavailable use Amaretto)
4 Large Ice Cubes
Glass half full of Crushed Ice
maraschino cherry
mint sprig
pineapple slice

Add the first five ingredients into a metal shaker with the large ice cubes
Shake until the metal shaker chills
Strain the mixture from the metal shaker over the crushed ice.
To garnish add the maraschino cherry and sprig of mint into the glass and the slice of pineapple on the rim.
