I'm excited to participate in G.I.Y's August theme, Food and Beverage.
I decided to share my favorite Tiki beverage, the 1944 Trader Vic's Mai Tai recipe. You can read what Beachbum Berry writes about the Mai Tai, quite an interesting read. We love crafting different cocktails and experimenting with different recipes, yet the Mai Tai will always be my favorite!
Rhum Clément VSOP Martinique rum
Appleton Estate Extra dark Jamaican rum
Orgeat (Almond syrup)
Sugar syrup (aka simple syrup)
Copied from the Beachbum Berry's website:
In your shaker pour 1 ounce each fresh lime juice, Rhum Clément VSOP Martinique rum, and Appleton Estate Extra dark Jamaican rum; 1/2 ounce orange Curacao; 1/2 ounce Latitude 29 Formula Orgeat (I just use Monin Almond Syrup or make our own); and 1/4 ounce sugar syrup. Add at least 2 cups of crushed ice, then shake well for around 10 seconds. Pour unstrained into a double old-fashioned glass. Sink your spent lime shell in the drink, and garnish with a mint sprig.
Aloha and Mahalo to Bane from G.I.Y for inspiring this post!
Thank you for reading, until next time!
