Light Rum

Dark Rum

Orange Liquor

splash Orgeat

splash bar syrup

juice of a lime

2 oz orange juice

maraschino cherry and a piece of fresh pineapple

ice

One of Val's faves. Lot's of variations.

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

Never had one, sounds really dangerous.

Never had one, sounds really dangerous.

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.

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.
