I like to make my own "Mai Tai Mix". I mix up a 12 oz, batch of orange curacao, orgeat and turbanado sugar syrup following the original proportions, and keep it in the fridge.
To make a Mai Tai I use 1 oz. of fresh lime, 1 oz of my "Mix", and two ounces of what ever rum combination I'm in the mood for. My favorite rums to use are: Appleton 12 year old and El DCorado 12 year old; Eldorado dark and Zaya; and Kohala Bay and El Dorado 12 year old. I enjoy making the original recipes for the Jet Pilot, 1934 Zombie, the Hukilau etc. but when I'm tired or lazy or tired and lazy. . . I just reach for my Mai Tai Mix and all is well with the world!
not the V/X and the VSOP as the Bum recommends?
