From what I remember it was

one ounce light rum
one ounce dark rum
one ounce 151
splash of sweet and sour
and
ice.

Or so it tasted...

This sounds correct for the Bali Hai Mai Tai I had in 2018. It was terrible.

The Bali Hai Mai Tai is the one we make at home....

The Bali Hai Mai Tai as we make it.

Dark rum 1oz
White rum 1oz
Curacao 1/2 oz
Sweet and sour 1oz
Orgeat 1/2 oz
Lime juice 1/2 of a lime

If I can find it I used to put an ounce of Ferreira Duque - Doirinha Almond Liqueur in them, Made them better we thought.

Mix in shaker with ice / serve with mint.

I love em.

It's been a while but The Trader Vic Orgeat had that rose water or a flower taste yuck.

I'm not a fan of the rosewater either. I always use orange flower water for my orgeat. Tastes more like an agreeable cocktail syrup and less like my grandma's perfume.

Agreed. I always think they taste like kerosene.

The Bali Hai is one of my favorite spots. That said their Mai Tai is horrible-worse even more than the ones that I have screwed up at home when I’ve had several too many. Imho, the Paralyzing Pufferfish is one of the best drinks served there. Google “ Bali Hai Olivia paralyzing pufferfish” no quotation marks, to see an excellent video featuring the lovely Olivia Daniel (senior bartender) concocting this delicious drink.
In case you can’t get the video here’s the recipe:
1.25 oz Fugu Horchata Vodka

1.25 oz Three Sheets Barrel Aged Rum
.
50 oz Cruzan Aged 151 Proof Rum
.
50 oz Trader Vic's Passion Fruit Syrup

2 fresh squeezed lime wedges

1.50 oz pineapple juice


Garnishes: pineapple wedge and cherry
