This is really a delicious Mai Tai cocktail. I used fresh squeezed lime juice which was a bit too strong (rather tart) for my taste buds, so I added about 1/2 ounce more pineapple juice and it was perfect. This is a wonderful version of the all-time favorite classic, and I will definitely make it again. Thanks, sweetcakes. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.
