I did a Neisson flight at a bar the other night. The Blanc is a little rough, but the aged varieties are quite nice.

so I (finally) made my first real Mai Tai the other day. The Clement was very smooth, however, I think I will try making my own falernum next time--I had the Velvet Falernum, and it just seemed like something was missing--kinda fell flat. Also, looking at my recipes: the one on the Beachbum's app says aged Jamaican rum; the one in the book says dark---any opinions?

Do you mean orgeat? I've never used falernum in my Mai Tais. Assuming you mean orgeat, I just made my first homemade batch yesterday and it was super simple if you use pre-packaged almond milk. Going to do a taste test soon.

darn!! yes!! LOL! the orgeat--I was mixing up 2 drinks! although that could be an interesting combination....but yes, as far as the mai tai goes, I think it was the orgeat that disappointed; I'm pretty sure it wasn't the rums. I would be interested to hear how your orgeat turns out
