Happy Mai Tai Day!

Since it´s the (inter)national Mai Tai Day today i bring out a toast with a double – or two stiff four-rum Mai Tai`s to celebrate the cocktail that has always been my favorite drink.

Much has already been writing on this drink on this blog and on other blogs –  so i won´t write on it´s history….or how to set the recipe straight – just mix up these two Mai Tai`s and say Cheers! and Okole Maluna!

MAI TAI WITH FOUR RUMS – Double recipe

1 oz Smith and Cross jamaican rum

1 oz Plantation Overproof Dark rum

1 oz El Dorado 12 yo demerara rum

1 oz Clemènt VSOP aged rhum agricole

2 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz orange curacao

0.5 oz simple syrup

0.5 oz orgeat

Fresh Mint

Shake together the ingredients with the a spent lime shell in the shaker and strain into a huge glass or two glasses filled with freshly crushed ice. Garnish with fresh mint, the spent lime shell and if you like, a sherry to add some color.

You don´t need to have the exact rums i`m using, try use 2 different good quality dark rums, one overproof dark rum and one aged rhum agricole.

Now…sip and enjoy! Mai Tai Roa Ae!
