Spotlight on the Mai Tai

The mai tai is a delicious cocktail reminiscent of the tropics. Every talented bartender who works in a cocktail lounge should know how to make this drink. There are many variations of the mai tai. Some people like to add pineapple juice, for example, and some add a little rock candy syrup.

As you’ll learn by watching the accompanying video, the base ingredients for the mai tai are Jamaican rum, rhum agricole, lime juice, and dry curacao. Mai tais should be served poured slowly into a full glass of crushed ice, and garnished with a fresh sprig of mint.
