Mai Tai

It is time to show how to make and thoroughly enjoy the best drink you will ever have… It is known as a Mai Tai and is a scrumptious tropical beverage that is perfect for any occasion under the sun.. Enjoy 😉

What you will need:

Light Rum, dark rum (I recommend Myers dark rum), triple sec, pineapple juice, orange juice, sweet and sour mix, grenadine, lime juice. Cherry and slice of pineapple are optional garnishes. Also, a nice umbrella tooth pick is aesthetically pleasing.

How to make it:

Grab a tropical glass or a standard liquor glass and mix:

1 1/4 ounces light rum
1/2 ounce triple sec
3/4 ounce orange juice
3/4 ounce pineapple juice
1/2 ounce dark rum (preferably Myers)
1/4 oz lime juice
1 dash of grenadine
Garnish with a cherry, slice of pineapple, and an umbrella toothpick. Serve over ice or use a cocktail shaker to bring out the full flavor.

Now this drink is somewhat complicated. However, it is well worth the prep time. Some recipes call for almond syrups. Moreover, I personally believe that the almond syrup is unnecessary and make the drink to sweet. As usual. tone the beverage to your liking. I guarantee you will love this drink. Enjoy!
