Mai Tai means ‘Out of this world’ in Tahitian and it’s the perfect name for an irresistible exotic cocktail. This recipe was created in 1944 by Trader Vic Bergeron at his Polynesian-themed restaurant in San Francisco.


  • 1 part BACARDÍ 8 Años rum
    1 part BACARDÍ Gold rum
    1/2 part Orange Curaçao
    3/5 part freshly squeezed lime juice
    3/5 part Orgeat syrup

  • Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass. Then add plenty of ice cubes and mix it all up thoroughly. Now serve it up by straining the mix into a glass full of crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and orange wedge.
