Mai Tai

Ingredients

2 ounces dark rum
1 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce orange curacao
1.2 ounce orgeat syrup
1/8 ounce simple syrup

Glass Type: Collins glass
Instructions

Stir the rum, lime juice, curaçao, orgeat syrup (an almond syrup sometimes inflicted on coffee; for all we know, you can pick some up at your local Starbucks), and “rock candy syrup” (no more than sugar syrup — look that up in your Joy of Cooking — made with a couple drops of vanilla extract) with cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker. Shake well and pour unstrained into a large Collins glass (or, of course, tiki mug). If making two or more, you might want to strain the mixture into the glasses, then pour in the ice (to ensure even distribution). Garnish with half a lime shell and sprig of mint.
