Made a few Mai Tais last night. Due to a winter storm and 12" of snow I didn't want bust out the 4 x 4 and go for the garnish. Kinda hard to see the drink in the glass but it didn't last long anyway.

Ahhh... Emeryville.




And... my personal Mai-Tai set up in the kitchen. Pardon the mess... we had just moved in. Not the traditional Mai-Tai glass, for sure, but I like to whip up a double in the Conga Room mug... fits perfecty.

I find it makes the best crushed ice for Tiki drinks. Lots of different sizes, keeps everything nice and cool.
My blender just turns everything into a snowcone.
Any suggestions on a good blender that actually chunks the ice instead of reducing it to snow?

Use an ICE CRUSHER, not a blender. Waring makes a "pro" model that is about $80. There are cheaper ones, but not sure how they will hold up in the long run. Good ice really make a difference...at least to me.

EBAY!!!! You can find vintage ice-o-matics for under $15 (if you can deal with pea soup green). They are awesome. Besides every house needs a wall mounted ice crusher.

Your right. I forgot about those. They are "cool", too.

The original, and still the best. Sanitized by magic Trannyhunes for your protection.

And here's a Don the Beachcomber-style Kon-Tiki Mai Tai from Sippin' Safari, made with a lovely ginger-infusion syrup:
