This classic Mai Tai recipe was given to me by my “was-band’s” sister Macy. Mai Tais can be difficult drinks. There are a lot of recipes out there, some good, but more not-so-good. I’ve tried a lot, and Macy’s recipe is pretty spot on. It’s a pretty sweet drink, but on those summer nights when you want to feel like you’re in the tropics this is a perfect choice.
- 1.5 oz Light Rum
- 1 oz Dark Rum (I float it on top and let the person mix it in - Macy uses Appleton Estate)
- 3/4 oz Triple Sec
- 1/2 oz Amaretto
- 1 oz Orange Juice
- 1 oz Pineapple Juice (She wrote whole can, but I odn't think that is correct)
- Splash of Lime Juice
- Splash of Club Soda
Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Pour into glass with ice and garnish.
