Drink of the Week – The Orange Mai Tai

Sticking with our Summery theme this week, I’d like to take a minute for Mai Tai’s….
The drink of the week! 
Mai Tai’s are the epitome of a tropical cocktail, and sometimes it’s nice to pretend that your on vacation from the comfort of your living room, by simply sharing one of these sweet treats with someone you like.  I’ve tried a variety of Mai Tai recipes, but none turns out quite as good as the following: 
  • 8 parts Caña Brava white rum
  • 3 parts Koloa dark rum 
  • 3 parts Orange Curaçao
  • 2 parts Simple syrup
  • 2 parts fresh lime juice
  • 2 parts unpasteurized Orange Juice from Trader Joe’s

Mix all together in a shaker and serve over ice.  Garnish with a slice of pineapple and enjoy!
