The final day of London Cocktail Week, and in particular: UK Rumfest, is the perfect opportunity to revisit one of the most well known rum cocktails: the Mai Tai. With some of the original ingredients of Trader Vic’s classic no longer available, creating either a perfect and/or authentic Mai Tai is harder than you might think. Fortunately the thought of imbibing vast quantities of this drink, albeit with an array of different ingredient variables, is not seen as the worst pastime in the world. The online Tiki community has put in the hard research required to discover the best Mai Tai ingredients. Purely in the interests of science, of course. The right combination of rums elevates a well made Mai Tai into the cocktail stratosphere. This updated Mai Tai page provides all the mixing details and references to more Mai Tai information that you’ll need to create a perfect Mai Tai.
