I think for maximum authenticity, you need to shake in a Mai Tai glass with a Boston shaker tin on top and then pour unstrained back into the Mai Tai glass, top with more ice, garnish, and voila!
I haven't watched the video yet, but I would say another important secret to a most excellent Mai Tai is using a short straw so that when you take a sip your nose is right in that fresh mint garnish. A big part of the sensory experience of the drink for me.
