I have a confession to make. I...<ahem> I don't actually really like the Trader Vic Mai Tai (as given in Vic's book and Beachbum Berry's book). I'm a dirty stinker. To me it tastes like I'm sucking on a lime. I got some Rhum Barbancourt a couple weeks ago and thought this'll make a fine Mai Tai. Still tasted like lime, no difference! The lime is overpowering. I've had a Mai Tai at the Chicago Trader Vic's and I don't remember it tasting at all like the one in the recipe books. I dunno. I've got a bunch of key limes and I'm going to try a TV Mai Tai made with key limes later.

I really dig the Surf Room Mai Tai in Intoxica! Excellent. Flounder, if you need some Demerera rum, Wally's on Mills Avenue has four different types of El Dorado.

I don't have any margarita mix but next time I see some I'll grab it so's I can try the Blue Florida. The Blue Hawaii is one of my favorite drinks so I'd like to compare.

I know this isn't a "show us your original drink thread," but since others have... I've been trying to pimp this drink recipe out but no one's told me they've tried it yet. Mmmmhmmmm good. I swear! Try it!

Rabid Mongoose:
2oz White Puerto Rican Rum
2oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum
1.5oz Sweet and Sour
.75 oz TV Orgeat Syrup
.75 oz Fresh Key Lime juice

Shaken with shaved ice and poured in a large rocks glass
