Looking for a fun, summery, island themed drink to celebrate this weekend? Try my super easy Mai Tai.
The secret to my Mai Tai? I buy inexpensive rum (like no more than $9.99) and add spices to it. (shhhh, don't tell anyone!)
And just as a disclaimer: apparently, the "traditional" mai tai does *not* have pineapple juice and uses orgeat. Whatever. This is still pretty damn tasty. Thanks.
- Throw all ingredients into shaker.
- Shake, shake, shake.
- Pour and Enjoy!
- Spiced Rum
- Bottle of your fave dark rum
- Add spices to taste (sorry, I don't measure). I use 2-3 cinnamon sticks, all-spice, sprinkle of ground organic chili chipotle and black pepper.
- Its best if you let it sit overnight
