Now here you may be thinking, “But wait…on vacation last Summer I had a Mai Tai at ‘Benny’s Beachfront Bazooka Bar’ in Panama City, and it had pineapple juice and orange juice and red stuff and came in a hollowed-out cantaloupe with a live tree frog impaled on a sparkler as a garnish. This recipe leaves a bunch of stuff out!”
The short answer is no, it doesn’t. For the sad tale of how the original Mai Tai was bastardized into oblivion almost from the moment of conception, consult the sources listed above. For now, back to the drink…
I would enjoy a real Mai Tai so much right now.
