Drinks on Me: Mai Tai (Alcoholic)

[ 0 ] February 25, 2009 |

Mai Tai

2 oz. dark rum
2 oz. light rum
2 oz. triple sec
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. grenadine
1 oz. orgeat syrup
1/2 oz. pineapple juice
Fresh mint leaves

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients over ice and shake well. Pour into a serving glass and garnish with mint leaves. Enjoy!

*Johnna’s tip: Ode to The Gibson for this one;-) After having their Mai Tai (*which by the way, is not on the regular menu…you have to ask the bartender to make this one for you), we just can’t seem to shake it and are seeking to reinvent it through this recipe…however, this one is no match for the one we had at the Gibson. Though this doesn’t match the one at the Gibson, it is a close runner up and just as enjoyable;-) Drink responsibly!
