This drink is awesome...takes you right to the islands! I agree with other viewers to use equal parts of spiced rum and coconut rum. I made enough for 2 so I used 2 jiggers of each and a 6 oz can of pineapple juice, 1/2 cup of oj and only 1 t. of grenadine. Absolutely delicious!
Ok, this drink is ALL wrong. Where do I begin? First of all, NEVER used flavored or spice rum in Tiki drinks. Use an aged rum and a white rum. NEVER EVER USE MALIBU! Second, there is never orange or pineapple juice in a Mai Tai. There is Orange Curacao, an orange flavored liquer, but never juice of an orange. Pineapple? Nope, never. The real recipe is aged dark rum, white rum, juice of a REAL lime, orange curacao, orgeat, simple syrum. Finally, garnish with a lime and fresh mint. This recipe is all wrong. SMH.
Great drink! I made exactly as recipe stated. The two rums are what make this drink. I made for our memorial weekend BBQ - big hit! Not a poor man's drink though - to buy all the ingredients gets pretty costly - but worth it for something different!
Great drink! Mai Tai's are one of our favorite drinks. I have made many many versions and this one is a great version. I do think it is a MUST to add amaretto in this as well to get the almond flavor that Mai Tai's have. Also half of a freshly squeezed lime is great in it as well! I like to add the lime and amaretto in it to make a more authentic tasting Mai Tai, but this recipe is for sure still great as written. Thanks for the recipe! This will be added to the list of favorites.
