Trader Vic’s Mai Tai

 In Tropical & Tiki

Home Bar Network presents one of THE MOST incorrectly made cocktails of ALL TIME — the Mai Tai!

Made famous in 1944 by Trader Vic’s, we stay true to the original recipe and specs from one of our favorite books of all time, Smuggler’s Cove. 🌴

🤔 Odds are, if you’ve ever attempted to order a Mai Tai at a bar, you’ve been served some mix of cheap rum and several random juices. But guess what, 🗣THAT AIN’T IT! Time to celebrate this classic in all of its true mouthwatering glory. 💯


2 oz Blended Aged Jamaican Rum (We used Appleton Estate)
1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao (Maison Ferrand)
1/2 oz Orgeat (We used Barsmith brand)
1/2 oz Rich Turbinado Syrup*
3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice

DIRECTIONS: Combine all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled. Garnish with lime and fresh mint to resemble an island and palm trees. 🎥 See video for full instruction.

*Rich Turbinado Syrup – Combine 1 cup turbinado sugar with 1/2 cup filtered water. Heat on medium until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, let cool and bottle. Will last in fridge 2-3 weeks.

YOU GOTTA MAKE THIS ONE BEFORE SUMMER IS OVER! Or anytime really, because they’re ain’t no rules to this game! Cheers!
