 Mai Tai made with Pusser’s Rum


The classic Mai Tai (“Very Good”!) is an unforgettable cocktail, an icy dark, flavorful rum and fresh lime juice drink with a subtle hint of oranges and almonds and a sprig of fresh mint for garnish. The Mai Tai may be Polynesian in name, but it’s American in origin, created in 1944, by a legendary California restaurateur, the late Vic Bergeron of Trader Vic’s fame.
