Mai tai

The mai tai is an absolute classic, perfect for a dinner party. Blending white and dark rum adds complexity alongside lime juice, orange liqueur, orgeat (almond syrup) and Angostura bitters.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients except the mint into a cocktail shaker. Make sure it’s filled with ice, then shake to combine everything.

  2. Fill a rocks glass with fresh ice and strain the mai tai into the glass using a hawthorne cocktail strainer and a fine mesh strainer. If you don’t have a strainer, any kitchen sieve will work just as well. Garnish the drink with the sprig of mint if using.

Recipe Tips

Use an aged rhum agricole in place of a standard white rum for a lovely floral note in your mai tai.
