Description

Mai Tai is a pearl among summer cocktails. Its worth its price to purchase a bottle of orgeat syrup (almonds syrup) for that well balanced, palatable and strong rum mixture. Careful, it's not a drink for wimps, even tough drinkers are reasonably drunken after a single drink.

Mai Tai consists of rum, triple sec, almonds syrup, sugar syrup and lime juice. Orgeat syrup is essential, it gives a tropical finish together with triple sec. It's hard to compare with other drinks, it's taste-wise a unique category.

Served with pineapple cherry decoration in a tumbler or wine glass, does that good looking cocktail classic keep up with the most beautifull cocktails.

With Mai Tai we guarantee that you will have a long and entertaining evening. Staying at a nice beach with hot temperatures and drinking a mai tai is an adventure. If you aren't next to the beach, a Mai Tai might help to bring these vibes into your place.

Decoration / Serving

Different Mai Tai decorations

Mai Tai looks really great with pineapple cherry decoration.

Tumblers or wine glasses are most appropiate for Mai Tai. You can express all your creativity with the decoration. Everthing made of pineapple, cherries, oranges or kiwis looks good. Don't forget 1-2 black straws.

A good presentation and an adequate environment are as important as the taste of cocktails. Use our decoration tool to test different decorations and glasses.
