This Mai Tai comes to us from craft mixologist Sam Holleman who is a total rockstar when it comes to making amazing drinks! The trick with this drink is getting the ice/snow cone to mix ratio perfect. We find that a shaved ice ball around 3″ in diameter works well but feel free to experiment. OK, here we go:
Grab a glass. Not just any ordinary glass but something special, like one of those cool, curvy hurricane glasses and add, in order:
1.5oz SoCal Platinum Rum
1oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Orgeat Syrup
1/2 oz Lime
1/2 oz blue curaçao
1/2 oz Macadamia liqueur
1/2 oz Dark rum float
Top with a scoop (or handful for you heathens) of crushed ice to form a snow cone like top. Top with a good dark rum and a drizzle of grenadine. Garnish with a cherry and fresh fruit.
Serve and smile as your guests stare back at you in amazed bewilderment!
