Oh, Mai

Traditionally, Mai Tai’s are the staple libations of ocean vacations. Unfortunately, when ordering this refreshing beverage - it can arrive overly sweet and often without good Orgeat or Rum. We substituted Rum for Genever and Rye, perfectly complimented by the addition of a small-batch, quality Orgeat. We love that it's still refreshing, but this time around, slightly malted and not too sweet -- perfect any time of the year.
