YUUUUUMY! I just got back from Oahu, Hawaii and had the best mai tais the whole time I was there. Your recipe is VERY close to what I enjoyed on the islands. The only thing I did differently was to float a little extra dark rum on top. And add a tropical flower, still trying to keep that Hawaii vibe going!! Thanks so much for posting!
I enjoyed this tonight as I watch the clean-up on the Daytona 500 track. I did not have any simple syrup, and did not want to make any either. So the next time I make this I will only use 1/2 lemon and lime, that is if I still not not have simple syrup. Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Official Game
This was a very nice Mai Tai. Our lemons and limes were quite tart, so I had to use extra simple syrup to get the drink to the level of sweetness that I liked. Thanks for sharing your recipe, petlover. Made for the "Best of 2011" tag game.
