Mai Tai Drink Recipe
Drink Recipes made with the Ingredients Above
Mai Tai: is a Tahitian word means good and this cocktail was supposed to have been invented at the Traders Vic’s “Polynesian-style restaurant” in California in 1944 but it is disputed. This extremely popular cocktail has many variations. Trader Vic’s has its own recipe as well as its rival and another claimant for its invention, Don the Beachcomber has its own. Anyway a well- accepted and common recipe of Mai Tai will be a combination of white and dark rums, curacao, orgeat syrup(sweet syrup from almond, sugar, rose water etc) and fresh lemon juice. All these ingredients except dark rum are shaken in a mixer with ice. Strain into glass and then pour the dark rum on the top to remain floated. Pineapple pears, mint leaves and lime rind are added as garnish
