How to Make a Trader Vic's Original Mai Tai
To make Trader Vic's Original Mai Tai you’ll need Appleton Extra Rum from Jamaica and St. James Royal Amber rum from Martini. A Mai Tai is always made with juice of one fresh lime at half an ounce of almond syrup also called orgeat followed by half an ounce of orange curacao and then add the rums one ounce each.
And then you need a good scoop of shaped ice. Let’s garnish and just let them in to release the scent of the mint, this lime shell symbolizes the little island, the pineapple spear suppose to be the sun setting down in the ocean. The mints should represent a little palm tree on the island. That’s called the Mai Tai.
