Mai Tai Swizzle Instructions

The Mai Tai Swizzle is a refreshing and tropical cocktail that is perfect for summer parties and gatherings. This classic Polynesian drink is known for its combination of rum, citrus flavors, and tropical notes.

To make a Mai Tai Swizzle, start by filling a tall glass with ice. Add a generous amount of white rum, followed by a splash of dark rum. Squeeze the juice of a fresh lime and a juicy orange into the glass. For a hint of sweetness, add a drizzle of almond syrup or orgeat syrup. Finally, top it off with a few dashes of aromatic bitters.

Once all the ingredients are in the glass, use a swizzle stick or a long spoon to gently mix everything together. The idea is to incorporate all the flavors while keeping the drink nicely chilled. The swizzle stick also helps to create a frothy texture and brings out the tropical scents.

Garnish your Mai Tai Swizzle with a slice of fresh pineapple, a maraschino cherry, and a sprig of fresh mint. The vibrant colors of the garnishes add a tropical touch to the cocktail, making it even more visually appealing.

When serving the Mai Tai Swizzle, it's essential to provide your guests with a straw. This allows them to enjoy every sip of this delightful cocktail, from the first to the last drop. The straw also helps to gently blend the flavors as you savor the drink.

The Mai Tai Swizzle is best enjoyed on a warm summer day, by the poolside or at a beach picnic. With its balanced mix of rum, citrus, and tropical flavors, it's sure to transport you to a sun-soaked tropical paradise with every sip.


Best served in a Highball Glass.
