How to Make a Mai Tai Cocktail
Mai Tai, Tahitian for "Out of This World - The Best," was created by Victor J. "Trader Vic" Bergeron in 1944. Crafted from premium rums and a hit of fruit, the Mai Tai is a delectable drink with many variants.
A true Mai Tai is the color of the alcohol; sweeteners should not dominate.
Use fresh squeezed lime juice, not RealLime or other bottled concentrate juices
A Mai Tai does not contain any fruit juice other then lime. No pineapple, no mango, no apricot.
