What Is Mai Tai Drink
One of the most well-known Tiki cocktails in the world is the Mai Tai. It's been a favourite of cocktail fans and Tiki fanatics for decades, and it's made with rum, orange curaçao, fresh lime juice, and orgeat (a subtle almond syrup). It even had a cameo in the Elvis Presley film "Blue Hawaii."
While the Mai Tai was meant to highlight the flavours of high-quality rum, it went wrong over the years as bartenders used canned juices and mixers. These resulted in neon-coloured or extremely sugary drinks. Fortunately, a resurgence of interest in Tiki drinks has reintroduced the Mai Tai as a light, balanced, rum-forward beverage.
Ingredients For Mai Tai
45ml White rum
20ml Orange Curaçao
20ml Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
15ml Dark Rum
Garnish: Lime Wheel; Mint Sprig
