Good luck getting a good Mai Tai from Kate Upton.



If Kate Upton is making the next round I better finish this one!

I never grow tired of reading Joe Bob's Mai Tai article.
Thanks Chip, for finding a great moment to share that timeless classic.

Just wanted to say I had my first Zombie. Used "Dr Cocktail" recipe (cruzan gold, cruzan light, lemon, lime, passionfruit syrup, pineapple juice, brown sugar, ag bitters - I did not have any lemon hart 151, it's at fedex waiting on me!) --- INCREDIBLE. Addicting flavor. The fresh lemon/lime are fantastic. I'm going to have to invest in a juicer and do fresh pineapple juice too instead of the canned stuff. Absolutely amazing.

I have not re-made my Mai tai yet. I just received a higher quality orgeat, and I ordered some eldorado 8. So for my mai tai I have the following rums:

Appleton V/X
Cruzan Gold
Cruzan (light? white? just normal)
Goslings
El Dorado 8
Pusser's
Flor de Cana 4

Which would you think would make the smoothest Mai tai?

You can make a very tasty Mai Tai with the Appelton and Cruzan pair, or Appleton and ED8.

If you want to get all fancy split your measure three-ways and use Appleton, ED8 and Flor de Cana (smallest measure).

You will ultimately have to start mixing and matching to find the blend you like best. And when you find a good one, write it down as well as share it here.

In fact, share your whole recipe so we can play along at home and make one too.
