Easy Mai Tai Recipe
I am so happy with the current creativity around craft cocktails. When we go out to dinner now, I spend as much time perusing the cocktail menu as I do the food! Each one sounds even better than the one before it! That being said, there is nothing like the comfort of a classic cocktail. You know exactly what you’re getting. Like this Easy Mai Tai Recipe. It’s a classic. One sip and you are on a tropical island.
One of the reasons, I settled on this Mai Tai this week is that we wanted to use some of our Homemade Grenadine. Homemade grenadine doesn’t look or taste anything like the bright red stuff you buy at the store. It is the real thing. Since it is not loaded with bright red dye, you don’t get the same color.
I love a Mai Tai. Any drink that uses two kinds of rum, is a good drink! For our dark rum, we used our favorite Gosling’s Black Seal. So good!
If you haven’t had a Mai Tai in a while, it’s time you revisited this classic!
To make this cocktail you might like:
- 1 ounce dark rum
- 1 ounce light rum
- 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- 1 teaspoon orgeat syrup
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 1 teaspoon grenadine
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Add ice cubes until the liquid is covered. Shake vigorously until shaker is cold. Strain into collins glass over ice. Add a Maraschino cherry for decoration.
