    Sounds great Randy! Just had a Mai Tai last week as temps hit the mid nineties in Maryland.

    It's absolutely delicious. Very drinkable though, and the alcohol can sneak up on you. My recipe:

    1oz - Appleton Extra 12 Year Old
    1oz - Clement VSOP
    .5oz - Orgeat
    .5oz - Orange Curacao (I've also used Grand Marnier and Cointreau before, both were superb)
    .25oz - Simple Syrup (Homemade, I prefer 1:1)
    Juice of a lime.

    The material difference amongst the best recipies is 1) whether to add a couple of ounces of fruit juice to make it let potent and 2) orange or pineapple juice if used.

    Each drink holds about 2 1/2 ounces of liquor, so they can be dangerous.

    Don't forget the crystallized sugar stick for stirring and gradual sweetness.

    The only addition to this discourse would be to serve it in a Collins type glass that is iced to the max. This libation needs copious amounts of ice.
