Mai Tai

Aug 11th

My countdown to Hawaii has begun!!

We are headed to a week of laying out and mai tais soon.

I thought I would start to get in the spirit this weekend with a Mai Tai.

TheΒ  Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki made this drink famous!

There are plenty of different ways to make this popular cocktail…but here’s the original recipe.

Do you have a favorite way to make a Mai Tai?

Personally I love it when they have a strong taste of pineapple.

Plus a little umbrella on the side!
