Cocktail Hour: Mai Tai

We've seem to have been talking a lot about tea this week. And that's great, I love the stuff, but it's halfway through the week and I could do with a proper drink at some point. This afternoon actually.

So here's the king of Mai Tais. Trader Vic's have stuck to this recipe since 1944. I'm not going to argue with them, but instead of using "Trader Vic's Rock Candy Syrup", I'll modify the recipe and tell you to use any sugar syrup you feel like.

You'll need these things:
  • 50ml of rum.
  • Juice of one lime
  • 10ml Orange Curacao.
  • 5 ml any old sugar syrup you feel like.
  • 15ml Almond Syrup
  • Crushed ice
  • Sprigs of mint
And then do this: Shake everything about. Shake it some more! Sing a song! Pour into a lo-ball glass with a straw and a sprig of mint. Drink, and pretend that your kitchen is a swanky hotel bar.

  1. Yum yum yum! Love Mai Tais! Sadly, not enough places serve them.

  2. Rum isn't often my drink of choice, but they do make a nice change. You're right though, you don't see them very often!
