Here's a mai tai (and my wahini) from the TV in the London Hilton, from August 2003:



It was pretty good - but I still think the one in Taipei was better.

Here's a mai tai that I got in Amsterdam. It sucked. Too pink. I cannot remember the hotel where I got this lame drink... too bad - forwarned is fore armed, or something like that.

The Chinese restaurant near my house makes the same pink nasty looking Mai Tai, but I keep going back to the place because the food is so good. I have never ordered another one of their Mai Tais.

Sorry to hear that! I'd look for another Chinese Restaurant, or if you're a regular, do what I did and teach them how to make one correctly! It worked well for me!

Here's a mai tai from Forbidden City in McLean Virginia. It tastes pretty good, but as you can see, it's missing a mint sprig. I got this drink tonight...

We got our glasses from the Trader Vic's in Atlanta- (let me assure you, no excuse is ever needed to head down there- just go! No regrets!)

But if you can't make the trek, just head on over to the Trader Vic's website. The glasses can be found here-
http://www.tradervicsfoodproducts.com/default.asp just click on "barware" in the left column.

Hey Sabina, Rob just got those, not bad, what I think is really nice is the Vic's shaker. It's pricey, but it performs as advertised. One of the nicest shakers I've used and I have a few at the house—only one of which, comes close. It forms a great seal with any respectable glass. I may consider one for myself.

Great thread, I'm going to have to mix up a Mai Tai and see if I can't get a decent photo to post.

By the way, nice meeting you folks.

Hi Foamy! It was good to meet you too, the other night - let's see a Foamy Mai Tai! Are you going to ikitnrev's party in April?

foamy, I'm ALMOST convinced, I've been contemplating the TV shaker for a while now. You've given me more to chew on. Mahalo!

This thread, and you folks are inspiring me to get some more pix going. As an aside, retracing my steps here, I BELIEVE the photo I took above was essentially the grog log recipe, (and yeah, there should be a garnish of pineapple on that too).

If any other folks post home bar Mai Tai pix I'd be interested in which recipes they're using and any specific touches they use in garnishes etc.

Now THAT is how a Mai Tai is supposed to look!

A Mai Tai should ALWAYS be shaken and NEVER have a float - EVER! (And what's with the ones in the pic from the Honolulu? What's that 'stuff' at the bottom? Looks like they've been sittin' out so long all the ice has melted! Blecch!)




DrZ,
David Chan - owner and mixologist at the Honolulu - was a bartender at the DC Vics for years before opening his own place. He had his own secret Mai-Tai mix and believe me when I say his drinks were ono. Actually, he was bottling and selling the mix just after they closed the restaraunt. I have a bottle, but have not opened it for sentimetal reasons. No idea if it can still be purchased though.

Yes! It can still be purchased. Check out their website www.time2tiki.com! It's good stuff. I might know where to get a recipe for that. PM me.
