    Mai Tai recipe's help

    I went out last weekend and tried a Mojito and a mai tai. I have looked at many different ingredients and how people make them. I am curious though on what are the best brands for the drinks such as between the light and dark rum or the triple sec. I notice when most people say there ingredients they leave out what brands they use. Please any help would be much appreciated.

    wave.gif Hi, MrJd, and welcome to the Beverage Forum!

    I think that rums are a matter of taste, to those who care for it. I, personally, have always found Bacardi to be a reliable product, from light (silver) to dark and including 151. If you want to elevate the mai-tai, I'd suggest you use Cointreau or Grand Marnier, in place of the triple sec. They are both orange flavored and suitable replacements for the triple sec.

    If you'd like to try different rums, I'd suggest you purchase some of the small (airplane) bottles, to judge their taste. That way, you don't buy a bottle that you end up not liking! icon_wink.gif

    I'm not sure if you searched our database, but there are 47 Mai-Tai recipes, HERE! You are welcome to mix/taste your way through them! Reviews (constructive, of course) are always welcome, as are photos, if you are so inclined! icon_biggrin.gif
    Here is one that I made last summer: The Best Mai Tai

    It was simple and delicious!

    Good luck in your mai-tai travels!

    Great advice Alli!

    We could name many different brands as well are varieties of liquors for you but the best way is simply to try them! Personal preference dictates which you would prefer.

    My suggestion would be like Alli said- try airplane sized bottles to start and see what your preference is. I would also add stay away from "off" brands or brands that are less well known- your local liquor store is a great source of info regarding which brands are considered "top shelf" or the best of the bunch!

    Enjoy the sampling!
