The 'original' recipe for a Mai-Tai is surprisingly simple... And, the recipe in question is some rum, lime, flavorings and garnish. Nothing fancy, nothing exotic, but when mixed together well, you pour something more than the sum of it's parts.

So, to the point I want to make in reference to pineapple....To many people/bars/books/etc... are using the Mai-Tai name as some sort of 'generic' cocktail name for something with rum in it. Is the Mai-Tai becoming the Martini of the Tiki Bar? And, speaking of martini's... just because it is served in a martini glass does not make it a martini. It is a cocktail in a martini glass. So, to continue, just because you modified your recipe for todays bar tending practices and add pineapple and grenadine does not mean it is a Mai-Tai. It may be Mai-Tai like... Mai-Tai flavored.... Mai-Tai insipired.... Whatever you want to call it, it is something other than a Mai-Tai.



Well put, Chip!

I second that, and move that we adjourn to the bar for further evidence.

Amen to that. I don't even bother ordering Manhattans in bars anymore. I just make 'em at home. It also irks me that I always have to specify GIN Gimlet these days. The bloody Gimlet originated as a gin drink!

The Gimlet kinda got the wind knocked out of its sails by its more popular & COLLEGIATE (where I discovered them) cousin..the dreaded KAMIKAZE.
still recall that hangover.....
