Invented in 1944 by Trader Vic Bergeron. He made rock candy and used the syrup from his rock candy in the first Mai Tai. When he served it everyone shouted "Mai Tai, Roa Ae!" Which means "out of this world, the best."

1 oz light rum
1 oz gold rum
1/2 oz Orange Curacao liqueur
1/2 oz orgeat syrup (almond syrup)
1/2 oz lime juice
1 oz dark rum

Shake all ingredients except dark rum together. Strain over ice into old fashioned glass. Top with dark rum and maraschino cherry.

Use less syrup

This drink is greatly improved by using less syrup than called for here. Try 1/4 ounce.
