Well, I'm drinking probably the first authentic Mai Tai of my life with Smith & Cross, Barbancourt, Cointreau, (and unfortunately Toroni orgeat, which may be negatively affecting the balance of my drink). That aside, it's fascinatingly different than any other Mai Tai I've ever had, including the ones I've made myself. It's almost like a tequila-based drink, I guess that's the Barbancourt? I'm going to try round 2 with Smith & Cross and something else, maybe Doorly's, though I kind of miss the darker rum or demerara flavors I associate with this drink (probably from making the Surf Room or Royal Hawaiian versions).
