Floratina, I believe brought a few bottles of the TV Mai Tai to the gathering at my pad a little while ago. The next day was nice and sunny, so I decided to try the remaining half bottle while floating around the pool. I made myself a tall glass over ice and started to blow up a new lounge pool float. I glance over at my drink, on the table, to see my Dobie, Stella, lapping away at the Mai Tai!

So dogs like it! I too thought it was pretty sweet and syrupy but not bad with extra rum. I know they should be on the rocks but it may lighten the stuff up if blended.

I discovered the TV premixed mai tais last year while backpacking on Maui. It became a staple in my pack (augmented by a small flask of Demerara for a float and a couple of limes to sour it down), allowing me to enjoy an evening mai tai on the beach/in the jungle/on the floor of Haleakala without having to carry too much extra weight (I transferred the mai tais into a plastic bottle to lighten the load a bit). Sometimes I had to forego ice, but hell, a warm mai tai sipped in a jungle treehouse in Hana is better than a cold one most anyplace else...

I tried TV Mai Tai mix ... it seemed a bit off. I added a splash of Barbencourt, a splash of Angostura bitters and some fresh lime juice -- pour over ice and mmmmmmmm.
All hail the freaky tiki!

Tasted the Trader Vic's dark rum at a friend's house last night. Eccchh, gag, blech, arghh! This stuff is worse than Whaler's - and that's bad. Sweet with a strong chemical taste - sorta like what motor oil might taste like. What were they thinking?? I'll stick with Myers'! (I got the 1.5L bottle of Myers' at Long's recently for $16.99)
