Macy’s Mai Tai

Macy’s mai tai

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.
