When you think of a Mai Tai, it’s impossible not to teleport to a sunny, sandy beach. It’s refreshing and fruity with just the right amount of sweetness. The classic Mai Tai has evolved to include other tropical flavors like pineapple juice, orange juice, or a splash of grenadine, but a true classic Mai Tai keeps it simple with a shaken blend of light rum, lime juice, dry Curaçao, and orgeat syrup over ice. Like any good tiki drink, these babies are strong and sneaky, so you won’t need much to get the party started. Serve these at a tiki-themed backyard bash, weekend brunch, or when you had an extra long day at work.
