Hostia, tio, ¿por donde se consigue un Mai Tai por allí? El año pasado fuí a Kahiki, y nada. mucho zumo, poco ron.

Coño, vaya inglés más raro os gastáis en Boston! :) Switchin' back to English: Yes, if you order a Mai Tai in Kahiki, you get anything but a Mai Tai. Same happens in Aloha. You know, loads of juices, liquors and other sweet and syrupy stuff that don't let you taste the flavour of rum, assuming you have rum in your drink. And they call it Mai Tai, but it's not.

BUT if you head to Kahala, up in Diagonal, it's something different. Last saturday I decided to ask the waiter how did they prepare the Mai Tai, because if you look at the menu they don't have it in the list of drinks with tiki mugs, but in another section kind of "tropical cocktails", with the daikiris, mojitos, caipirinhas and stuff, so it seems they take it seriously. The answer of the busy waiter was something like "white rum, dark rum, lemon, almond, curaçao". Yes, they use lemon instead of lime juice, so it was less tart that it should be, and it missed the fresh mint. They also use ice cubes instead of crushed ice, but it's the closest thing to a Mai Tai you can have in a tiki bar in Spain.

Um, and it's served in an old-fashioned glass instead of a tiki mug, and that's fine.

Also you can head to my place and I'll mix you a real Mai Tai with limes, mint and stuff!

Hasta luego,

That sounds like the plan! I don't get over there nearly enough, but when I'm there again, y quien coño sabe cuando, I'll take you up on that. Thanks!

You know, it sounds like you've got something there, Mr. Bastardo. I think you should open up a "real" tiki bar in Spain and serve correct Mai Tais! Let me know if you do; I might be interested in a silent partner arrangement!

Yes, that is some fantasy of me and my wahine... But after 30 seconds of thinking about it, we realise it's too much work and we don't know exactly how to manage it... So I mix two more Mai Tais and everything is OK again!

Here's a few that I've had in the past few months.



* I’ve re-shot the Good Luck Bar Mai Tai to get the Dragon Swizzle facing the right way.

Very Nice Bora Boris! I'm jealous....

Why did they not stir the one in the lower left corner? It looks like the poured all of the ingredients into layers instead of actually mixing the drink....

And where did the one in the lower right corner come from? I like the swizzle, but I'm scared of pink Mai-Tais.

Actually, it looks like a couple of them are done in layers. Are the bars you frequent to busy to actually mix the cocktails? Is the layer effect becoming common on the West Coast?

Thanks Tikigap! It turned out much better than I thought it would so now I am also inspired to drink/photograph more but I have come up with some rules –

• No Repeats
• No Chains = California Pizza Kitchen, TGI Friday's, Islands places like that but there are some exceptions and obviously Trader Vic’s doesn’t count.
• No places that list Bacardi® or Grenadine as ingredients on the menu. If those ingredients are in there they’re in there but at least I won’t know in advance.
That should do it. (Man I am full of myself!)

Chip and Andy the drinks are ~

First row left to right ~ Trader Vic’s Emeryville • Tiki-Ti • Forbidden Island • Bahooka

Second row left to right ~ Bali Hai San Diego • Tony’s Fish Market - Redondo Beach • Damon’s • The Tonga Hut

Third row left to right ~ Sam’s Seafood • Atomiktty’s Mai Tai from the Tiki Modern Party at 8 Ball • Shintaro a Japanese Restaurant here in Hollywood and the Pink one is from the Good Luck Bar.

The Swizzle is actually backward but it’s so dark in there I couldn’t tell. (I’ve re-shot the Good Luck Bar Mai Tai to get the Dragon Swizzle facing the right way.) None of the places with the rum float were busy; I just think they don’t know what they’re doing or that it’s “Their Version of a Mai Tai” which gives me a headache first when I hear it and then again when I drink it.

Boris, that's excellent I love it. Now just add yours (Borai Tai?) to the end for the perfect finish

Very cool pictures Boris.
One of the only good things about Trader Vic's Las Vegas.
