Thanks ES - !

I just ordered a box of 6 glasses for $49. I can't afford the shaker though. That's another $50...plus shipping...ugh!

Now look what I've gone and started!

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing- to other people's wallets!

You folks have a standing invitation- anytime!

But, now that the Waldorf has reopened on weekends, we may just have to bring some Seven Pleasures Mai Tais to you- if only by way of *beginning* to say thank you for all the kind hospitality over the "Holy shit, it's a Tiki event in Vancouver!" events.

You two, your fine mixology, Funhauser, the garden, and your wondrous "Beautility" are all missed very much!

Here are two photos of the Mai Tai's from the Mai-Kai. (Say that 10 times fast!)

The first photo is without the flash and it looks to dark, the second with the flash and it looks too light. Split the difference, or drink three or four and you have it.


The drink is not really this dark and reddish.


This is closer to the actual color of presentation, but the flash washes out all of the garnish.

And, here is the best view of any Mai-Tai, regardless of mixologist or location

Alright, odd little detail questions here, as you can see from the Mai Kai Mai Tai pix, they dust both the mint and the orchid with powdered sugar. Where the heck did that come from, is it used on other drinks outside of the Mai Kai, and does anyone else do it on Mai Tais? OR is it just one of the many unique aspects of the Mai Kai's Mai Tai?

Also, what do people think of orchids in their Mai Tais? Does the faint scent work with the mint for you, or do you find it distracts?

My pic and review of the Mai Kai's Mai Tai is HERE. Keep in mind I'm a bit of a purist... a Mai Tai ain't a real Mai Tai unless it's a Trader Vic Mai Tai.

I love it. It reminds me of the Mai Tais I wasn't even old enough to drink when my folks took me to Hawaii. My Dad enjoyed them and I thought they were the most amazing things. We also attended a fruit buffet on Waikiki beach where the food trays were sunk in ice, the ice being entirely covered in tiny purple orchids. I remember my folks marveling at how many orchids it would take to cover that big table. Something about seeing my parents excitement over the flower has stuck with me, and whether or not it's the most historically correct garnish for a Mai Tai, it's my favorite.

As for the subtle scent of the orchid and mint effecting the flavor, I remember a segment on CBS Sunday Morning about a very creative chef who vaporizes anise into an inflatable place mat then pokes tiny holes in it so when the dish is lowered onto the little pillow the sent is forced out mixing with that of the entree to effect the overall flavor.

I'm not voting this one the best, it really needed more dark rum for my taste. This was taken at Daytona Beach, FL.

Mai Tai's


Enjoying

Yeah, looks like it needs more dark rum, but the orchids are nice!

I mixed a Mai Tai and thought I would post a picture of it here.



It tasted much much better than it looked.
I used
Beachbum Berry's $100 Mai Tai Recipie and I recomend it to everyone.
