The mighty Mai Tai originally hails from California and is the ultimate tiki beach bar spiced rum drink. With a name that means ‘good’ in Tahitian, it’s no surprise that the Captain finds a Mai Tai one of the best cocktails to indulge in while stranded on a desert island.
What’s in a Mai Tai? Well, it’s usually made from a tropical mix of rum, Curaçao, almond syrup and lime, but we’ve commandeered it and made it our own by adding Captain Morgan Coconut Rum, Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and a dash of orange liqueur.
Our Mai Tai recipe is made with Grand Marnier, but you can use any orange liqueur if you so desire. Garnish your rum drink with a slice of pineapple and a sprig of fresh mint for a more exotic vibe.
For one serving
- 15 Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
- 15 Captain Morgan Coconut Rum
