Thirsty Thursday….Mai Tai recipe, It’s from Duke’s…a famous beachfront bar and restaurant in Waikiki. They’ve been making these for years and they have them perfected. I’d suggest playing with the recipe to taste as theirs do pack quite a punch. Add a little umbrella and a cherry on top, play some ukulele music and you’ll be transported to Hawaii. Aloha!
The Duke’s Mai Tai recipe:
4 ounce Orgeat syrup – Orgeat syrup is a sweet syrup made from almonds, sugar, and rose water or orange flower water. It was originally made with a barley-almond blend. It has a pronounced almond taste and is used to flavor many cocktails.
1/2 ounce orange curacao
1/2 ounce gold rum
3 ounces fresh PPOG (pineapple, passion orange, guava) juice
1 1/4 ounce dark rum
Garnish with a pineapple, lime and parasol
