Tiki Week Mai Tai:

The Mai Tai is classic tiki, one of the beverages people think of when they say tiki, and one of the most ordered cocktail at any polynesian restaurant. That brand history has grown over the years, and you’ll find tons of different mai tai variations.

Part of tiki is the design and implementation and riff’s off old classics. Add pineapple juice, orange juice, a bit of grenadine, the Mai Tai takes on many styles and different folks love different ways of doing it. In our case, we’re doing a classic variation without simple syrup and all orgeat because this video highlights the orgeat in the recipe.
