Mai Tai°


The Mai Tai is a well-known alcoholic cocktail.

  "Maita'i" is the Tahitian word for "good." The spelling of the drink, however, is two words.

 The story of its invention is that the Trader (Victor J. Bergeron) created it one  afternoon for some friends who were visiting from Tahiti. One of them tasted it and cried out: "Maita'i roa!" (Literally "good very!", figuratively "Out of this world!")


 How can you make it?

  o 30 ml light rum
  o 30 ml brown rum
