Tropical Mai Tai Cocktails
Here is what you are going to need….
Makes juice mix for 2 Mai Tai cocktails
1/4 Cup Fresh Orange Juice (1/2 Orange)
1/8 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice (1 Lime)
1/8 Cup Fresh Lime Juice (1 Lemon)
1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice (Ok… I use the canned stuff here)
Aged Light Rum
Umbrella (not optional)
*The Grenadine is not traditional but I enjoy that little splash of color. Add it if you like or leave it out 🙂
I use a shot glass for measuring.
Fill a shaker with ice followed by…
1 Shot of Light Rum
1/2 Shot of Cointreau
3 Shots of the Fresh Juice mixture
1 tablespoon of the Orgeat
Shake. Shake. Shake.
Then pour into a glass. Add just a splash of Grenadine (if so desired… it will settle to the bottom).
Then top with…
3/4 Shot Dark Rum
Decorate as desired.
For best results …. Repeat for a friend who hasn’t Fooled you.
