Mai Tai

This is the real McCoy. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the ones you have been having on the beach in Bali or Waikiki are fake. They are a sweet and murky drink, filled with assorted fruit juices and syrups


60ml Appleton Extra or other aged Jamaican rum

30ml lime juice

15ml Cointreau

1 plus ½ teaspoon orgeat

1 plus ½ teaspoon simple syrup

Mint for garnish


Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well for 10 seconds and strain into a double old-fashioned glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with lime shell and a sprig of fresh mint.
