Mai Tai

This is our favorite Hawaii beverage!! For Halloween it became "eye tai" for obvious reasons:

I liked the taste of this recipe quite a bit and felt it was pretty close to the good ones we had in Hawaii, here it is:

The Perfect Mai Tai
adapted from allrecipes.com

  • 2 cups light rum
  • 2 cups dark rum
  • 1 cup orange curacao (orange flavored liqueur) or triple sec
  • 1 cup almond flavored syrup or almond liqueur like amaretto
  • 1 cup simple syrup (2 cups of sugar and one cup of water, boiled until dissolved)
  • 10 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 gallon fresh orange juice or other juice (I found a mixed tropical juice for this!)

Mix all ingredients together and serve with LOTS of ice. Beware this drink is delicious and strong!! Enjoy.
