The Mai Tai is a perfect hot weather vacation feeling drink. One sip takes you away to lounging on the beach and soaking up the rays. We went for some higher quality rums in this with a nice bold flavor to add tons of complexity. The Mai Tai takes slightly more time to throw together than many of the other cocktails we’ve written about, but don’t let that scare you off. It’s that extra effort that makes it worth it.

A warning. Any store bought Orgeat will suffice, but they aren’t all created equally. We made our own for this recipe(it’s pretty easy to do), but if you want to buy some we recommend Small Hand Foods Orgeat.
An easy, cheap way of making crushed ice is to throw some cubes into a ziplock back and smash away with a pan, cup(careful not to break it!), or a hammer. This is a great way to work out even more stress before having one of the ultimate stress relief cocktails!
