I recently spoke with a bartender at the Bali Hai about their recipe and watched intently as he made several. The correct authentic recipe is:
1. fill a double old fashioned glass with crushed ice (they use a beaded type ice)
2. free-pour approximately 1 ounces each of orange curacao and orgeat (he used a two second pour, pouring both at the same time)
3. free-pour approximately 2 ounces each of Ron Rico light rum and Coruba dark rum (he used a four to five second pour, pouring both at the same time)
4. splash of sweet and sour on top
5. give it a quick stir
6. garnish with a cherry and pineapple wedge

Bali Hai Mai Tai's are definitely unique and not your normal mai tai. Also they are not for the weak!

It's as strong as two standard Trader Vic's Mai Tais. In fact, it is approximately a double Mai Tail with different rums and sweet and sour mix instead of freshly squeezed lime and simple syrup.

This BH Mai Tai recipe makes sense as they always taste to me WAY stronger than the "official" recipe that Bali Hai occassionally provides to be printed in the local paper.

Perhaps their lawyers won't let them "officially" admit, to local papers, the potency of what they actually serve, for liability concerns!
