Emeril's restaurants make fabulous mai tais so I was happy to find this recipe on the foodnetwork.com.
- 3 ounces light rum
- 1 1⁄2 ounces dark rum
- 1 ounce orange Curacao
- 2 ounces pineapple juice
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1⁄2 ounce lime juice
- 1 dash grenadine
- cracked ice
- maraschino cherry, for garnish
- paper, umbrellas for garnish
- Fill a cocktail shaker half way with ice cubes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cherries and shake until cold and frothy, about 30 to 45 seconds.
- Strain into 2 tall glasses with cracked ice and garnish each with 2 maraschino cherries and paper umbrellas.
- Serve immediately.
This was yummy, I used three different light rums - regular, pineapple & passionfruit. Probably could turn this into a yummy pina colada with a little coconut cream. (My DH also added some frozen pineapple chunks to his drink.)
YUM! Sweet and fruity, lovely red color. Not bad at all, really nice and smooth, with a kick if you donÂ´t kill it with the ice. What is it I was missing in these? Just a little twist of almond, maybe?
