The origin of the name of this cocktail is very curious. Mai Tai in Polynesian means “out of this world” and the cocktail was so renamed because, when served to a Polynesian, he replied “Mai Tai!” to say “crazy, delicious”! And in fact it is just like that: really delicious.
It is perfect to be enjoyed with slightly sweet and sour dishes, both meat and fish, in an Asian style, possibly with a spicy touch.
Here is the recipe :
4 cl white rum 2 cl dark rum 1.5 cl orange curaçao 1.5 cl barley syrup 1 cl lemon juice
Pour the ingredients into the shaker with ice. Blend and strain into a highball glass. Decorate with pineapple leaves, lime zest and mint leaves. Serve with a straw.
